Recently I have gotten on a hummus kick. I make it as low fat as possible and was wondering if anybody had any recipes to share?

My norm:
chickpeas (and as much of the liquid as needed)
garlic
salt & pepper
lemon juice
cumin
a tad of toasted sesame seed oil for flavor

It's a lot better with Tahini(more traditional too) instead of sesame oil, IMHO. I also add a little olive oil swirled on the top and sprinkle with cayenne.
I love it spread on turkey sandwiches or wraps.

one can of chick peas drained
one can of chick peas with the liquid
1/2 cup Tahini
juice from one lemon (not bottle)
2 cloves of Garlic crushed

Put in food processor and turn into a smooth paste.

Put in serving dish pour (good) Olive Oil on top

top with cayenne pepper and chopped parsley.

(To quote one source "her husband is so rich that he does not care how much Olive Oil she uses".

Dip with veggies or Pita wedges.\

( some times I leave it slightly chunky)

Note: OLIVE OIL is GOOD for you.

I have a bottle of sesame oil I am trying to use. Once that is gone, I will switch to tahini.

I use way more than the called for garlic. Always. :supergrin:

In Spain and other Mediterranean countries, the chickpea is known as poor man's beef.

Here's my favorite hummus:


Costco!!


$5 for a quart, excellent stuff!

Even my fresh-off-the-plane Greek wife agrees!

I like to slice pitted klamata olives in half and garnish the top with them.
