WFMW: Hummus Among Us

My hubby can work magic with The Garbanzo Bean. His knack for turning chick peas into hummus is profound.

We use it as a spread on bread, we dip pretzels, carrots, crackers, celery, our fingers in it.

Plus, it’s healthy! But don’t tell my kids.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

2 cans drained chickpeas

1/3 cup lemon juice

2 heaping tablespoons sesame tahini

4-6 cloves of minced garlic

11/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon of ground cumin

1/4 or more of cayenne pepper

2 roasted red peppers from a can

Approximately 1 tablespoon olive oil

Blend in food processor or blender

What works for you?

    Yum! Thanks for sharing the recipe-never made it from scratch but always eat it! I always spread roasted red pepper hummus and top with feta cheese and chopped kalamata olives-its really good!

    Wow, we must all have FOOD on the brain! Look at all the recipes already listed! (me included!) Your hummus sounds so yummy. Now I am craving some right. now. Too bad for me–I’m out in the boonies with no chickpeas within 30 miles… :-)

    I’m praying for your family in Kenya!!! What an amazing experience for your family to experience together.

    Sometimes tahini is hard to find (or expensive!) You can make the same recipe, and substitute sunflower seeds (2-4 tablespoons). I’d recommend you put the sunflower seeds in the blender first with a little bit of the lemon juice or olive oil to get it nice and creamy, and then add and blend the other ingredients. We love hummus here, too!

    Yep, we all love hummus! I just have to remember to take it easy on the garlic — I love a lot but the family as much (though they will still eat it). :)

    Thinking of your family while you’re in Kenya!

    Hi, just found your blog! Looks like I may be the last person on earth who didn’t know about it??? I’ll be back, thanks for the recipe I’m on a roasted red pepper kick right now AND I’m addicted to hummus!!!

    Just made the hummus and it was delicious!! Nice little kick of flavor, although I only used 1/8 t cayenne. This one is keeper :)

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that
    service? Thanks!

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I
    wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
