    Mrs Goodall's Note:

    I made up this recipe from another hummus recipe. I really make it to taste, and it seems to be a little different each add or delete as you see fit! I like a lot of garlic I've gone as high as 15 cloves, but I think 10 is probably the right amount. Sometimes this comes out thicker than I'd like (sometimes not)...if so, I add a bit more water and/or olive oil. If you don't like cilantro, you could use parsley. I love this as a dip, or with pita or naan and tomatoes and cucumbers!! Served this one as an appetizer at my wedding! YUM!

    1. 1
      On a cutting board mince and mash the garlic to a paste with the salt.
    2. 2
      In a food processor puree the chick-peas with the garlic paste, the tahini, the lemon juice, the oil and water, scraping down the sides, until the hummus is smooth. Add water/oil, if necessary, to thin the hummus to the desired consistency.
    3. 3
      Add salt to taste.
    4. 4
      Add cumin and blend, taste and adjust if necessary.
    5. 5
      Add cilantro and process until chopped into mixture.
    6. 6
      Add toasted pine nuts and process until blended -- or you can just add them on top, whole, as garnish.
    7. 7
      Transfer the hummus to a bowl and serve.

      I liked the thickness! This was very good as a celery stuffer w/a little paprika sprinkled on it. Have to admit that I added 4 jalpenos to make it spicy but will add even more next time! Thanks!

      I liked this hummus. Although it was a little thick, it tasted good. I did add more olive oil and water, but it wasn't enough to thin it out like I wanted it. I made it with what I had on hand, thus I did not add any pine nuts, but the hummus was nice and creamy. My husband liked it alot - especially the strong garlic taste. I did like the fact that it was relatively easy to make, though mincing the garlic and salt was a little messy (and sticky). But who cares? You can always wash in between, and if it tastes good, that's the point.
