Cook's Notes

Hummus is traditionally enriched with copious amounts of olive oil and sesame paste. In this version the amount of fat is drastically reduced; be sure to use high-quality olive oil and tahini for the best flavor.

    I added more EVOO 1/4 cup, used the water from the can of chickpeas until it was smooth, added 1/2 tsp cumin and onion powder and a clove of roasted garlic.

    Hummus love. Normally I buy the Sabra brand at work which is also roasted garlic. Homemade tastes exactly the same and probably even better since I made this decadent creation myself! Very easy and very yummy. I've been trying to share with everyone but will probably have to make more in a couple days. ;-)

      This homemade hummus was as good as the store bought brands, but was all fresh and easy to make, perfect :)

    This is an excellant recipe. I used a whole head of roasted garlic and only had sesame seeds instead of tahini and the taste was enjoyable to us with Garden of eatin blue chips. We have tried several differant recipes for hummus and this has been the best. Thanks
