“This is my take on Hummus. There is never enough garlic in the recipes I've tried so I really increased the amount. This is a recipe that seems to never come out quite the same. I don't adjust the garbanzo or tahini amounts but definitely adjust the amount of water for consistency, the garlic and spices etc. to suit your taste. This is a nice quick appetizer for pot lucks or parties. It can easily be made a day or too ahead of time.”

Directions

  1. On a cutting board mince and mash the garlic to a paste with the salt.
  2. In a food processor puree the garbanzo/chickpeas with the garlic paste, the tahini, the lemon juice, the oil, and water, scraping down the sides, until the hummus is smooth. Add salt or more lemon juice to taste.
  3. Add water if necessary, to thin the hummus to the desired consistency (it should not be too thick).
  4. Add dashes of hot sauce, 1 cup coarsely chopped cilantro and 2 tablespoons pine nuts. Pulse the processor a few times to incorporate the nuts and cilantro.
  5. Taste, and adjust seasoning to your taste.
  6. Transfer hummus to a serving bowl, garnish with remaining whole pine nuts and chopped cilantro. Serve hummus with veggies, pita bread, naan etc.
