My husband just discovered that hummus is so good. We are buying it at least once a week at the store. Was looking for a quick and easy recipe to make at home!

Thanks :hippie:

I make mine with chickpeas, olive oil, lemon, a garlic clove or 2 and a few tablespoons of tahini paste and blend in food processor. If you want to try a different flavor add some chipotle pepper or roasted red pepper to it.

Thanks for this link! I think I'll be making some hummus pretty soon. I absolutely LOVE hummus... but haven't been brave enough to make it on my own. I love the pictures and easy instructions in the link. :)

I make it a couple times a week in our Magic Bullet. One can of chickpeas, 1/4 cup tahini, a clove of garlic, splash of lemon juice, a little olive oil, and reserved water from chickpeas it it's too thick. A little salt, and a dash of cayene pepper. SO easy.

Have you tried it with and without tahini? Can you tell a taste difference?
