I recently tried and really liked hummus. So I came up with my own version, loosly adapted from the back of the cumin canister. This is a basic recipe but one that DH and DD liked too. Hope you like it as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put first 7 ingredients in food processor and pulse. May need to add a little water to get to the correct consistancy. I also add just a tad more garlic powder and onion powder for flavor. We like garlic at my house, so that is your preference.
  2. Chill for 20 to 30 mins and enjoy with cut up vegetables, pita chips or crackers.

I left a message for my sister to stop over for cocktails and dip. I'm glad she called back. I can't tell you the number of times that I've searched for my phone only to have my cleavage vibrate. Oh, there it issssss! Good hummus with a capital O-O-D. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

Oh very good stuff! I like hummus, but have had problems with it being way too dry. I used my blender and this turned out nice and smooth. I did add a bit more garlic and red pepper for flavor. I served this with some red peppers and celery. I also chopped up some green onions to sprinkle over the top. Made and Reviewed for EveryDay Holiday tag - Thanks! :)

Yum seriously yum! I only added 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper since I wanted some adventurous kid visitors to try this... and they loved it, sadly my less adventourous kids didn't like it at all. I also found that my food processor didn't get it as smooth as I wanted it.. it looked a bit grainy so I transfered to the blender and it was smooth in seconds. I too added more garlic and onion as we thought it needed it ( or we have gotten used to only having a LOT). Over all, an excellent hummus recipe, please see my rating system: 4 excellent stars for an easy and very tasty recipe ( and we will add more pepper next time sans kids) Thanks!
