    Hummus with Herbs and Spices

    2 C cooked chickpeas (garbanzos), homemade or canned with 1/4 C liquid reserved
    1/2 C tahini (sesame seed paste)
    1/4 C lemon juice
    1/3 C chopped scallions, green and white parts
    1/2 C chopped fresh parsley
    1 tsp. ground cumin

    Combine the chickpeas, 1/4 reserved liquid, tahini, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Process completely smooth. It should have the consistency of smooth mased potatoes.

    Add the scallions and parsley. Pulse on and off a few times until just combined. Add the cumin and stir. Add additional chickpea liquid, if you want a thinner mixture. Serve at room temp with pita bread and/or vegetables.

    Yields 2 1/2 Cups.

    Mmmm,,, hummus... *Homer Drool*

    I make mine with one can of chick peas. Put that in blender with about 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp tahini, a splash of lemon juice and some roasted red pepper (from a jar, drained well). Blend that well, adding some of the reserved canned juice if it gets too thick.

    Lunacie, there arean't any Asian/Gourmet type stores by you? Not anything like that here either, but I was able to find it in my Shop Rite. You could always see if they can special order some for you.

    Print Recipe

    Contributed by Eileen Goltz

    Ingredients

    2 tablespoons sesame seeds
    1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup tepid water

    Instructions

    Blend sesame seeds in a blender and grind until smooth. Add sesame oil, salt, and then slowly add 1/4 cup of water while blending. Blend until completely smooth.

    Note: Sesame seeds turn rancid quickly, so make certain yours are fresh. Be sure to store them away from light and heat and use quickly.


    Serving Size

    Makes 1/2 cup

    Notes

    Yes you can easily purchase Tahini already prepared but it's soooo much tastier when it’s fresh that you may never want to serve the store bought again.
