Good stuff. I like chick peas on my salads. Nice and filling and healthy too. And you?

Hummus is extremely easy to make at home at a fraction of the cost you pay at the store. I just read article about all the additives store bought hummus contains another advantage is that you control what is on it. That way you can keep it healthy and create any flavor you want to. I make it at least once a week in our house .

Bet it's the tahini. Make your own and add the flavors you like. Its basically a neutral bean dip until you flavorize it.

Also people when using canned garbanzos rinse them out under cold water before processing them.

Simple Hummus Recipe – Better than Storebought Hummus

I don't usually add cumin to the basic recipe.

Pretty gross in my opinion so it won't be taking over any part of my home anytime soon. To those that like it though I think it is good for them but has been around for years so it is not an earth shattering discovery.

I like it a lot. Different flavors so if you don't like one, another might work.

My recipe is very basic and you can easily add or omit ingredients.....
I can cici beans, rinse well
3 tablespoons each, olive oil, tahini paste, lemon juice
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt and white pepper

Add all to blender and process adding water by tablespoonfulls until you have the consistency you want.

We like things spicy so add-ins are frequently, cayenne pepper, sriachi sauce, smoked paprika, thyme, rosemary,parsley, olives, roasted peppers, tomatoes ( roasted or sundried) , roasted garlic and/ or basil. I try and keep it to only 1 or2 additions but you really can put in whatever you like.
