yummus yummus: hummus

Something about fall drives me into the kitchen reaching for dried beans and so forth. I think I my be part squirrel, worrying about the oncoming cold. Today I made hummus, for tonight's dinner and next week's lunches (in cheese sandwiches).


Puree in blender:
4-6 cloves garlic
2 cans drained garbanzo beans aka chickpeas (reserve the liquid)
2 T lemon juice
3 T cumin (or more)
1 T paprika
1 C tahini aka sesame butter
fresh parsley
1 T sea salt

If your blender bogs down, add 1 Tb olive oil & 1 Tb garbanzo water per bogging.

Try to not eat it by the spoonful, at least not when your kids are looking.

Serve with soup and freshly made pita bread.

I've been wanting to make hummus, very glad to run across a recipe that does not have me soaking the beans and boiling them and whatnot. I like opening a can and going at it. I might try some tomorrow!

Thanks again!
