Cook's Note:

I usually end up using about half of the bean liquid, so be sure to reserve it!

Also, I like to let the flavors blend several hours or overnight before serving this.

my go to hummus recipe. I simply love hummus. I cannot find tahini anywhere in my area, no surprise, so I searched a substitute and went with tablespoon full of peanut butter. I love it with a peanut butter Read More

Great recipe! Although, if you are a garlic lover don't be stingy! I added 3 cloves and it was just the right amount for flavor and not too over powering! Read More

My hubby went nuts! Made this in about 5 minutes with my Bullet. I doubled the olive oil AND THE LEMON and left out the sesame oil and only used about 2 tbsp of the garbanzo bean liquid. Wonderful, fresh and YUMMY!!!! Read More

Okay, I know this annoys people, but I made this with changes, upon which this review is based. I was watching a show about snacks for the big game, and I suddenly HAD to have hummus, and I had no garbanzo beans, so I wound up using black beans. I added only about half the oil, and I didn't have to add much bean liquid at all to get a good consistency. I added a little turmeric (just cause it's good for you), a little more cumin and garlic, and about 1-2 T chopped cilantro to go with the more Latin flavor. It's resting in the fridge now, but it was very tasty immediately after I made it. It doesn't look the most appealing, so I think if I were to serve it for guests, I'd garnish it with minced tomatoes and cilantro for color. I plan to use this as a dip, but I think this would also make a great vegetarian filling for quesadillas. Read More

So Super Easy!and we made it tonight. He was looking at a different recipe and drained the liquid from the beans down the sink! Just a little was left in the can. Had to use a little water and used about 1/4 cup EVOO which was fine by us as we love it. We also added a lot more garlic as that is our preference. We held back a few whole beans to put on top and drizzled on a bit more olive oil after putting in a container. Tastes great but putting in the fridge overnight to meld the flavors. We will definitely be making this again maybe we'll try cooking the dry beans and make a double portion. Just wondering can this be frozen? Read More

Wow. So easy to make and so delicious. I love that I have control over what I put in it vs store bought. Definitely better than store bought. I drizzled in a little more than a couple of drops for the sesame oil and added in an extra clove of garlic (I like it garlicky). I had to make myself stop eating it long enough to chill it.

So easy and tasty. I like mine with a smoother texture so I take an extra step and peel the garbanzo beans. Just place in a bowl of warm water rub very gently between your hands. Then run water over flowing to separate the skins. Read More
