Simple, healthy dip made from garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas).
Drain the garbanzo beans and reserve 1/4 cup of the liquid
Combine the beans, 1/4 cup reserved liquid, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, olive oil, cumin, pepper and salt in a blender or small food processor. Puree until smooth.
Best if refrigerated for at least 3 hours. Serve in a shallow dish, drizzle additional extra virgin olive oil over the hummus just before serving.
You can add all sorts of extras to this base recipe: sun tried tomatoes, peppers, chilis, ginger. My favorite is to add 1-2 tbs of harissa (a Tunisian hot chili sauce) to give a nice heat!
Lwylie58 1w agoThe addition of the olive oil is an improvement
Hpe 1m agoI also didn't add cumin, in fact I followed the Middle Eastern review below! It turns out perfect.

evelayman 9m agoNot bad! I added more lemon juice, skipped the salt and hot pepper. Maybe too much tahini for my taste.
Tarousa 9m agoAs I'm from middle east in my country Lebanon we don't do it that way we don't add cumin or roasted peppers or anything else the hummus is chick peas tahini garlic lemon don't keep any of the water that comes in a can with the chick peas always rinse them before you put it in the food processor add fresh water. The olive oil is for to decorate the plate you put it in the center of the hummus. I was reading the coment one of them used the heard chick peas yes you can use it but you have to soak them in cold water overnight then in the morning you put them in the pot with water on medium heat till they get soft then wait till they get cold then you put them in the food processor. This is a traditional Lebanese humus.
richardhweiner 9m agoI have to try this but no tahini. ..not a fan of sesame taste. Substitutes?
Samsineni 10m agoSo easy and so tasty! It lasted forever, so mind the portion sizes if you're only making it for a small amount of people.

ReverendKen 11m agoI'm sorry about my not knowing chick peas were garbanzo beans, and my phone's spelling of hummus.
