Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water and pinto beans in a saucepan; bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Cover saucepan and remove from heat; let sit, at least 1 hour. Bring water back to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until beans are tender, about 45 minutes.

  • Mix onions, red wine, sesame seeds, and garlic in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until wine has evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Blend bean-water mixture in a blender until smooth; add onion mixture and blend until smooth.

Cook's Notes:

Additional water may be added while blending to get a smooth consistency for hummus.

If this is your meal, this serves a few. But if this is an appetizer, more servings can be had.

If you're looking for an alternative to the traditional garbanzo bean hummus look no further. I could eat this with a spoon. The wine is the perfect complement for this hummus. The only problem I had with this was that it resulted in somewhat of a thinner consistency that I'm use to, nevertheless it did not detract from the flavor. Next time I will reserve the bean liquids and add a little at a time to arrive at the right consistency. The only change I made was toasting the sesame seeds for an additional depth of flavor. Thank you sueb for this keeper. Read More

I felt the onion was too overpowering and the hummus was missing a little tang... maybe some lemon juice was needed. Keep an eye on the pinto beans while cooking and give them a stir every once in a while. The water evaporated out of mine and they burned to the bottom. I had to cook a second time and turned the burner down to low instead of medium low. Read More
