Creamy Hummus

Ok, yes...I'm addicted to Vive Le Vegan. It's so great! I made this tonight to dip some chips in...and it's completely addicting. After I looked at the recipe again, I realized I forgot the tahini (kind of an important thing!) and it was STILL great. Don't EVER buy hummus from the store again...this is the best recipe I've found!

2 cups cooked chickpeas (canned is ok, soaking your own is best)
3.5 - 5 T freshly squeezed lemon juice (adjust to taste)
2-3 T tahini
2 T extra-virgin olive oil
1 small to medium garlic clove
1/2 t toasted sesame oil
1/2 t sea salt
3-4 T water (or less/more as desired)
Freshly ground pepper to taste

In a blender or food processor, combine all the ingredients and puree until smooth, adding a little water at first, then more if desired to thin it. Scrape down sides of bowl several times throughout and puree again until very smooth. Season to taste with additional salt, pepper, and/or lemon juice. Serve in a large bowl, drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil.

OOO...will have to try. Most recipes we have use canned chick peas and I hate canned chick peas. Even Randy's recipe from his middle eastern friend, written in Arabic from his mama - uses CANNED chick peas. what's up with that?

This is quite like my hummus recipe -- I can't stand tahini, and prefer toasted sesame oil in mine as well. Much more flavorful!

we are having a holistic moms network potluck tonight so i am going to bring along some of this hummus!
i have always bought mine but had some homemade hummus recently at a local mediterranean restaurant and it was spectacular. i could never eat the store-bought stuff again!
this looks like a good recipe!

Great post! I?m just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well - resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case. Sbobet Casino Sbobet
