Monica & Jamie's Hummas

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Monica and Jamie Pe

Jamie and I own a graphic design business. One of our clients owns a Persian restaurant with a terrific Hummas appetizer. This inspired us to try our own hand at it. After trying many recipies, we've created this version with an array of the ingredients we liked best from what we tried. Here's my recipe, not too bad if I do say so myself!

Thanks, this is great!! I add just a little more honey, because I like it a little sweet. This is better then store bought.

  1. In a food processor or blender add the tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, heavy cream, orange juice and honey. Blend. Add garbanzo beans and blend until really smooth. Add salt to taste. Refridgerate an hour or two and then serve on warm pita bread topped with basil and onion slices. Makes a nice breakfast snack or appetizer too. Enjoy!
