Hummus

Hummus created by Sommer Clary

This classic dish is so versatile and loved by all! I have tried many hummus recipes and was never really happy with how they turned out. This is the result of my many hummus experiments in the kitchen. Enjoy! PS- This is a basic hummus recipe; sometimes I like to use this as the base recipe for flavored hummus (for example, I'll add cilantro and a jalepeno, or feta and artichoke hearts, etc. You can have fun with it!).

    We have used this recipe three times now, and with a few minor modifications it is the best! We use our own home-canned chickpeas and use only 1/4 cup of tahini as any more is overwhelming for us. Extra lemon juice to our taste is the only other thing we do differently. Thanks for sharing....this is one of the best hummus recipes we have found to date!
