Hummus III
Reviews:
December 07, 2003

My husband and I are arabic so we eat a lot of hummus and after making this recipe we agreed it is absolutely easier to make it then to get in our car and drive to the restaurant and carry it out. However, we needed to make a couple of minor changes to get to this point. We used 2- 15 1/2 oz cans of garbanzo beans. We thought it was a bit too much tahini so we used slighty under 1/3 cup. We added an extra clove of garlic (at least). We also added red pepper which is a staple ingredient in hummus so I was surprised it was ommited (not a lot- maybe a teaspoon or so). We also agreed with other reviewers that you need some of the chick pea juice to thin it out just a bit. We used 3/4 of a can of juice from one can of the chick peas. My mother in law tells me that if you peel the chick peas (which is supposed to be fast and easy) it will come out better too- I don't think I will do this though because it tasted great just like this. We also used a little more lemon than the recipe called for - it just depends on your taste.
