This is the first time making my own hummus-and completely from scratch; dry beans and raw sunflower seeds! I added bit of kosher salt for my own taste---Delicious! Submitted by:

Humus is awesome, I made mine with Chick & Black bean. I prefer to use dried beans a much better taste, I don't do canned way to much salt. I make lots then freeze. Submitted by:

I'm not a tahini fan, so I put olives in it instead (some to process and then add bits for extra flavor). I don't need to worry about sodium though. Submitted by:

Using canned beans is the best way to assure a creamy texture--sometimes starting from dried beans, it's hard to get them soft enough. Mix with some yogurt and use as a lowfat high flavor sandwich spread. Add red pepper flakes instead of cayenne to control the heat factor. Submitted by:

Try making a black bean hummus (although technically, I think it's hummus only when made with chick peas. Consider it a black bean dip!) Use black beans, garlic, cummin, salt, white pepper, fresh oregano and olive oil. Dip with pita, cuban crackers, fresh green bell pepper strips. Really delicious. Submitted by:
