RE: Another easy Hummus recipe

Hi Donna,

Since we seem to be finding new & different Hummus Recipes, here's a few of my favorites. Grab some Low-Salt Crackers, some Baked Potato Chips, or some Raw Veggie Sticks and have fun...

White Bean Hummus

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups white beans, drained and rinsed, or soaked if using dried
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of tahini
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 1/2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • water

Preparation:

In a blender or food processor, blend the white beans. Add tahini, lemon juice, cumin, garlic, olive oil, and salt until the ingredients form a creamy, paste-like consistency. Add small amounts of water as needed until desired texture. Pour the mixture into a large serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate for one hour or serve immediately

And finally, for those who are extra health conscious in the crowd:
Hummus With Yogurt
This easy hummus recipe replaces most of the traditional tahini with yogurt. This is a great alternative for those who are watching their weight.

Ingredients:

  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained (save liquid)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • cumin (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon tahini, or low fat peanut butter if you prefer (optional, but if you do not use, increase yogurt by 1 TBSP)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preparation:

In a food processor combine beans, tahini (ony if desired), yogurt, garlic, and lemon juice. Blend well. Add salt and cumin and blend to a smooth and creamy dip.

If your hummus is too thick, add a little bit of the liquid from the chickpeas - about a teaspoon at a time. Other ways to thin out hummus is by using warm water or olive oil.

Phil,

Every single one of those Hummus recipes sounds tasty so I am going to copy them all! Thanks for sharing. I am just getting into Hummus after tasting it at my sister's house in Wisconsin. I think I will make a copy for her, too, and take it along when I visit this summer. She is a good cook and baker who loves to make healthy dishes.
