We just buy Sabra (sp) at the store. Just love it with a glass of wine.

I don't have measurements but my husband makes amazing Hummus. He uses:
Garbanzo beans
Fresh squeezed lemon
Tahini
Fresh garlic
Olive oil
Sea salt to taste.

He said he also sometimes uses white beans instead if you want a high fiber one.

I just made some on Monday, I use this recipe www.inspiredtaste.net easy-and-smooth-hummus-recipe
I don't use the full amount of lemon juice and I add a little more spices. I like mine with a kick.

I have been looking for a good recipe for hummus for quite a while. Thanks for posting this one. I have several good Middle Eastern restaurants close to me and they sell hummus for a very reasonable cost. Each one of them makes the hummus a little bit different so I get a variety all the time, but I still want a good recipe that I can count on.

I use the canned chickpeas, rinse them and simmer in water with 1/4 tsp of baking soda for about 5 minutes to remove the skins. It does make them smoother. This is a good basic recipe that you can tweak for your tastes.

We've bought store bought but homemade really tastes better. And hummus is healthy!

I don't have an exact recipe for you, but I do have a tip. I use sesame oil, instead of tahini. It still imparts that toasty flavor and personally, I have a lot more uses for the oil. Tahini just sits in my fridge, taking up door shelf space, plus it's more expensive.

Thanks Tropit, for the sesame oil tip. Just checked my jar of Tahini - sell by date of 2017. Might be time to get rid of it. Next time I will try the oil.
