Hummus

Submitted by: BEECHNUT13

Introduction

I'm Lebanese, so I'm picky about my hummus. That stuff you buy in the grocery store is nasty - this is where it's at!

Hummus is delicious in sandwiches, with pita bread, or as a dip for fresh vegetables - especially delicious with red bell peppers... YUM CITY!!!

  • Do you cook and remove the skins from the chick peas? I generally do that because I like how smooth you can make the hummus that way. :) - 1/31/10

    Nope - I use canned chickpeas and the canned liquid and put it through the processor for awhile. I'll have to try that though - my hummus is smooth, but never really creamy.
