I made some hummus yesterday and it is delicious. I am wondering if there are different ways to make hummus? Does anyone add things to their hummus? What do you use it for?



I made mine with Tahini, garlic, chickpeas, lemon juice and s+p.



I have been using it as a spread on crackers, as a dip and as an alternative to mayonaisse.

I love it, too! I've added olive oil and some favorite herbs to the ingredients you mentioned. My recipe says to add sun dried tomatoes or roasted red peppers for variety but so far I just love it the way it is!

My basic recipe is similar to yours. I also add chopped onions and various herbs for more flavor.



I use hummus not only as a dip, but also as a sandwich spread.

There are many great ways to make hummus. I especially like adding dill flavor to it. Or try roasted red, green, orange and yellow peppers. Sauteed garlic is also a good option.

I put El Pato in my hummus. It gives my hummus a very nice kick without giving it an off-taste.



I tried making hummus once with curry powder in it. It was dead nasty so I won't be doing that again anytime soon.



And I use mine as a dip, sandwich spread, and a topper for baked potatoes. I've heard that you can also thin it down and use it as a salad dressing.



MMMMMMM... hummus!

A bit o' cumin and coriander are essential for an authentic hummus. Varying the ratio of garbanzos to tahini will make a big difference in the flavor. Black bean hummus also kicks serious booty.

Black bean hummus, soyboy? That sounds super-good. Do you do anything differently, or do you simply use black beans in place of the chickpeas and make it the usual way?



And I love cumin and coriander in my hummus, but fresh coriander is ruiniously expensive here and I have yet to find any jars of the dried stuff. So, no authentic for me.



Even though a lot of people love tahini and put that stuff in their hummus, I don't (I got very sick on sesame seeds once when I was very young and have never been able to stomach the stuff since).

Roasted peppers (hot or mild)

Shallots! -Because I have a weird shallot obsession right now. Oh yes they are good in hummus.

Sesame oil drizzled over the top is quite nice

Cayenne Pepper- gives it a nice zip



Ahhh hummus! I'm going home to make some right now!



DeeYah- If you have an Indian or Asian grocery near you, you can obtain spices for super cheap. I bought a gigantic bag of dried coriander for under 3.00!

It's really good. No tahini in BB hummus and proportions of ingredients are slightly different. If you want, I can post the recipe here.

I probably should have specified ground coriander seed , not the fresh stuff (aka cilantro). Sorry 'bout that!

I know some people have used peanut butter as a tahini substitute with some success. Your mileage may vary.

Ground coriander seed? Hmm... that's easier to get out here. I may have to do it that way, sometime. Thanks for the tip!

But is there batteries included? I must have batteries included. (just kidding, you know. I've been meaning to try the PB method but the jar keeps getting emptied before I can do that....).

So I'm a total bonehead. I checked the book with the recipe and it DOES have tahini-it's the WHITE bean hummus that doesn't have tahini. I'm sure this'll still taste damn good without it though. I also noticed that the book said batteries are included but you have to buy the set of knives in order to get them.



Black bean hummus



1 cup cooked black beans

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce

1 tablespoon tahini

2 dashes of tabasco or a pinch of cayenne

salt & fresh ground black pepper



Blend all ingredients in food processor until consistency is smooth. Add bean liquid if to thick and season with salt and pepper to taste.
