"I used homemade roasted red peppers. I roasted the peppers first, then started on the hummus after the peppers had cooled. It was delicious, but after one day it lost a lot of its yummy taste, and the garlic really took over. We called it garlic dip when we brought it to a party, but regardless, it was a hit. :) Thanks for the post."


2 large cloves Garlic
1 15-oz can garbanzo beans
1/3 cup Tahini
1/3 cup Fresh Lemon Juice

Toasted red peppers would go well also with this and heighten the flavor.

LOVE THIS!! It has become my favorite hummus to make. I only add 3 Tbs of lemon juice tho, 1/3 cup is too much & it over powers the pepper. I, too, roast the red pepper myself on the stove & I drain the liquid, reserving it to add at the end for the consistancy I want.

Did a variation on this. Used grilled eggplant instead of the beans and added some red pepper flakes. Left out the sesame seed paste

This was fabulous! Everyones comments were helpful. I added olive oil to mixture when blending, drained garbanzos, and cut lemon juice in half with garbanzo liquid. I garnished with pine nuts and sun dryad tomato

A group of my schoolteacher friends/ staff and I are doing Weight Watchers together and MINUS the tahini this is still fabulous and very point friendly. Roasted the peppers myself.

I liked this the 2nd time around - the first time I didn't drain the garbanzo beans. It doesn't say to in the recipe, but I should have known better. Very tasty.

This is delicious! Next time I would use a little less lemon juice, substituting some of the liquid from the beans because it was a bit tart for my taste, but otherwise absolutely DELICIOUS!!
