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


  1. 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!
