Hummus with Tahini Recipe
Recipe Type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Author: Evelyn Clausen
from the kitchen of: Evelyn Clausen The key to brag-worthy hummus is to let the flavor of the garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas) come through, and use a light hand when adding lemon. Because of its fiber and high vitamin content, this healthy spread is a current favorite among snackers.
  • 2 1/2 cups canned garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 to 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup sesame tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 to 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  1. Put all ingredients except the garbanzo beans and parsley into a blender; blend for 5 seconds. Add the beans and blend on high until mixture reaches the consistency of a granular sour cream, approximately 10 to 15 seconds. If the hummus is too thick, add a little water slowly and blend until it reaches the desired consistency.
  2. Transfer to a serving bowl; cover and refrigerate for a few hours before serving. The flavors will meld well if given a chance to sit for awhile. Serve with pita wedges, crackers, or slices of whole grain bread.
  3. TIP: A thorough rinsing of the garbanzo beans will clear away the taste of any ingredients used in the canning process.
