    Katzen's Note:

    From Elizabeth Baird's blog, an easy hummus with variations. Apparently, putting the garlic in the food processor can make it bitter, so stir in finely chopped or crushed garlic after processing. Variations are noted at recipe bottom.

    1. 1
      1. Combine all of the ingredients except the garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth, scraping down the side of the bowl several times to ensure an even smooth paste. Add more water for a thinner hummus. Stir in garlic. (Make-ahead: Scrape into an airtight container, cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.)
    2. 2
      2. Tip: If you like to accentuate the sesame flavour, drizzle in a little dark sesame oil with the olive oil.

      I love hummus, but I always bought it from the store.This recipe is even better than what I bought and it will be my new go to hummus recipe. I made it plain and loved it, then with cumin, which was even better, because I'm a cumin fan.

      Good hummus. I like the texture too. I made the cumin version. I did not use as much cold water but my tahini was quite thin, I used sea salt & unrefined extra virgin olive oil which I also drizzled over top. I would like to try the herb version next time. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.

      Excellent hummus! I made the Cumin variation, and added sesame oil for half of the olive oil. We like ours thicker, so cut the amount of water in half. (I actually doubled the whole recipe EXCEPT the water, since I was making it for a crowd-it doubled easily.) Served with baked pita chips. Sprinkled with some paprika before serving.
