This is VERY good! I used canned organic unsalted chickpeas, used some of the liquid instead of water, added a 1/2 tsp of sea salt and drizzled the olive oil around the top. I used 2 good sized garlic cloves and it was a little spicy... I'll use one next time. Delicious with baby carrots! Submitted by:

Hey all - great comments, ideas and suggestions... thought I'd weigh in on the "calorie/fat content of tahini" issue... yes, more tahini will add more calories because of the fat content. Keep in mind, though, that it's the good poly- and monounsaturated kind! You need fat in your diet and having Submitted by:

I keep hummus on hand all the time. I add peppers, cumin and sometimes chopped black olives for extra flavor. It is also great spread on half a tortilla, sprinkled with some fat free cheese, sprayed with olive oil and browned on each side in a non stick skillet Submitted by:

Looks good! I'm from the ME and we DO use garlic, but as a tip to everyone, adding the olive oil when blending can make it separate, not to mention add extra unneeded calories! I usually drizzle a teeny bit on top, so that the texture is smooth. And I just add more lemon juice to up the flavor. Submitted by:

I also use peanut butter instead of tahini and add a little salt and cumin. I tried adding dried tomatoes to some recipes. My favorite is chopped-up kalmete olives. Submitted by:
