super-yummy hummus

Top Review by BerrySweet

Excellent hummus! (Although I'd rename to Cumin-Spiked Hummus as the lemon title is a little misleading since the lemon flavor is not really pronounced here.) I used only 2 teaspoons of cumin as I did not want it to taste overly spiced, but I did want some zip so tripled the hot sauce. I think 2 dashes is pretty mild. Also, it was a bit dry so I went ahead and added all of the juice from the garbanzo can and the texture was perfect. Overall a nice, tasy hummus that we are loving!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. saute garlic and inion in 1 tsp olive oil in a small saucepan, until translucent. Transfer to food processor and blend with remaining olive oil and additional ingredients.
  2. If mixture is too dry, add liquid from garbanzo beans until consistency is creamy.
  3. I like it spicier, so I add extra cumin and hot pepper.
  4. Serve with warm pita bread or raw veggies.
