We'll be having this for dinner often during zucchini season. I did leave out the salt as we need to have low sodium.

Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus (Chummus)

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
This is almost the same recipe I have used for years. Shown how to make by a friend as my family members did not make this. Home cooked beans are far superior to canned and much more economical. Homemade hummus (or just about anything homemade for that matter) is superior to any pre-made full of preservative thing you buy at the store. To those of you who have commented that the texture is coarse, either your beans are not cooked enough and/or you have not blended the hummus long enough, at 5 minutes in my high powered blender it is smooth, silky and fluffy. Blend, puree or process until you have the correct texture! Cumin is an authentic Near and Middle Eastern seasoning, garlic if used it is just a whisper. Remember this is not an American grocery store clone. This is the real stuff, probably a recipe passed from an elder relative to a younger one, including the most special ingredient of all, love! So if you must, add the whole bulb of garlic, roasted red pepper or a hot pepper or two, more or less tahini and lemon juice or whatever else you want to, make it with love and then it will be authentic to you and your family. Oh I almost forgot, my favorite way to eat it is warm on freshly baked, homemade pita bread or soft lavosh, some nice salty cured olives on the side! Yum!!!!!!

Boyd's Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
Great basic pinto recipe! Smoked neck bones are very salty, don't add salt until you taste the broth. We liked them as is, great comfort food for us bean change the recipe up one might add chopped onion and some garlic maybe a hot pepper or two. Try this one it is a really good recipe.
