Yummy!! I did find I had to add more reserved liquid, but that is probably due to my blender. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, no paprika and I did the Curried Green Onion Hummus version using Iraqi Curry Powder. I'd like to try some other versions of this easy hummus. Made for
Veggie Swap 32 ~ March 2011.
I made the roasted red pepper/kalamata combination and loved it! I loved being able to make a good tasting hummus without the use of tahini. I will keep this recipe handy. I especially love all the variations given. Thank you so much!
I made the curried green onion hummus last night to bring to an Indian themed dinner party. I used madras curry powder, 2 tsp. I needed all of the chickpea liquid. This was really easy and I had all the ingredients on hand. It went over really well.
I have tried making hummus before and Isa's hummus in this book is my favorite! I guess I don't like tahini :) I love the plain and paprika ones. Actually, the plain usually gets dashes of paprika anyway.
I tried the "Shabby Sheik" version. It's good as a sandwich spread, but I wouldn't call it hummus. Tasted more like the real thing to me when I replaced the olive oil with toasted sesame oil.
I really like the idea of this dip and especially that there are so many different versions to try out. The basic hummus is great, but I tried the Shabby Sheik version and that was a bit too spicy for my taste. I already halved all the spices except for the cumin and still my mouth was on fire. lol
Next time Ill just reduce them even more. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe here with us, Mindy.
