"I serve this at least once a week with a chicken or steak meal or just as a quick snack. Learned from my late grandfather who was of Lebanese descent. Serve with fresh Arabic bread."

  • Prep

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • For thinner hummus, add more a little more water or even the liquid from the chickpeas. I find 1/4 cup water with totally drained garbanzos is perfect; after refrigeration it will thicken up. This is the basic hummus recipe and is simple yet delicious. Enjoy!

My husband is a hummus fanatic. He claims this is the best yet. I upped the lemon juice to 3 tbs and added 8 oz of drained roasted red peppers.

Super-easy, super-tasty. Had these down by the pool with pita chips. Great snack.

This hummus is delicious. I wouldn't change a thing, although I made a triple recipe and made two alternatives with part of it: one with steamed yellow squash with cinnamon and cloves and one ...

I added 6 tablespoons tahini. Just personal preference. I also added a small pinch of cayenne pepper.
