Hummus


I want to like hummus because it's a really healthy dip and I know I need to eat more beans. I've never really liked it though. I was flipping through How It All Vegan for bean recipes and saw that they had Holy Moly Hummus. This series of vegan cookbooks has never let me down and I'm always pleasantly surprised with how things turn out so I figured I had to try it.

It turned out really well and will now be my go to hummus recipe. I'd like to try adding roasted garlic next time. This post is pretty unexciting but trust me, the delicious hummus recipe makes up for it! You must try it, whether you are a hummus lover or disliker (as I was).


Holy Moly Hummus
adapted from How It All Vegan

Makes approximately 2 cups.

1 small onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
splash of olive oil
2 1/2 cups cooked OR canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
3/4 cup tahini (about 200 grams)
1 1/2 tbsp Braggs OR soy sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice OR 1/4 cup water + 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt

In a small saucepan, saute onions and garlic in a splash of oil on medium heat until onions are translucent. In a blender or food processor, blend the sauteed onions, chickpeas, tahini, Braggs/soy sauce, lemon juice, cumin, cayenne and salt until you reach desired consistency.

I had a roommate years ago that would make hummus all of the time, but I haven't had any since then. Maybe it's time I tried it for myself!!

I love hummus but my recipe makes a ton and then we get sick of it trying to eat it all. I'll have to try yours. It sounds great!

I have NO problem eating beans...just the opposite...
Great hummus recipe - I could probably eath the whole thing at one sitting! Why do I always love the food that's high in calories?

sounds like a wonderfully delicious hummus recipe - have you ever tried/seen the hummus recipes in either "The Everyday Vegan," "Vive le Vegan," or the new "Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan"? They're fabulous :0)

have you tried the roasted red pepper hummus from La Dolce Vegan? it's to die for. although I like donteatoffthesidewalk.com's recipe from her zine even more. less vinegary.

Oh man, I adore hummus in just about any sort of form. There's always some in my fridge, and right now I think I actually have 3 containers of it! If only I had a blender here at the dorm, I would make my own and try out your formula instead of buying the ready-made stuff that's only so-so... But hey, what's a hummus-lover to do in times of hardship? ;)
