Love this recipe. I rinse the organic beans several times before I put them in the food processor to remove any excess sodium. Yummy! Submitted by:

I have to watch my sodium intake. I make mine from dried beans, using no salt, and overcooking them in a crockpot to make them easier to blend into the proper consistancy. I use no tahini and add spices to suit my taste of the day. Submitted by:

Don't you mean you swapped the white beans for half the tahini?

And aren't we supposed to have some healthy fat to help get the nourishment from our carbs?

Not bad! I'll eat it :) Perfect for a snack that isn't too carb heavy yet adds some fiber. As for the tahini - I love it, but it's hard to come by where I live. Instead, I used creamy peanut butter (crunchy works well too with a nice, crunchy texture) - I can hardly tell the difference. Submitted by:

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:
