Hummus is perfect for a wide variety of uses as a dip, a spread, or as a side dish - whether eaten alone or for entertaining and get-togethers. Here is a simple delicious recipe.
- 4 cups (approx. 3 cans) garbanzo beans. Drain and reserve 1/2 cup liquid.
- 1 cup ground sesame seeds
- 6-8 cloves garlic-minced
- ¾ cup lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons Tamari
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- ¼ cup dried parsley
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Add additional liquid from garbanzo beans as desired to arrive at a spreading consistency. Best when chilled and covered overnight.
Can be made in advance and frozen for later use. Excellent on crackers, tortilla chips, and even toast!
