Chickpea spread. We often replace a portion of the chickpeas with cooked edamame. This gives the hummus a nice green tint and sweetens it a very small amount.

This is absolutely fantastic. First time ever tasting hummus. Unbelievably good. However I had to make a few changes for lack of ingredients. I had to substitute the cumin and parsley. Instead I used savory and chili powder. Also I had to make my own tahini with the following recipe: 1 1/3 cup sesame seeds 1/8 - 1/4 cup oil I baked the sesame seeds on a shallow pan at 350'F shaking the tray every minute or so for about 8-10 minutes. Let the seeds cool and pureed them with the oil. As a twist I put the hummus on a tortilla wrap with chopped carrots. Delicious every way you serve it. Read More

Delicious! I used a can of garbanzo beans that I drained. I did need to add a bit more water and lemon juice to get it to the consistancy that I wanted it but that was no big deal. I topped mine w/ olive oil parsley toasted pine nuts and paprika. Great flavor...I will def be using this recipe again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

We've made this several times usually with homemade bagels but not always. The flavor is terrific and the texture is smooth and creamy even though I often add additional garlic. I have always used one whole can of garbanzo beans drained and it comes out great. Read More
