tahini paste, or to taste
extra-virgin olive oil
1 (15 ounce) can
garbanzo beans, drained
cucumber, coarsely chopped
salt and black pepper to taste
Yummy! I didn't have the tahini paste so I used 1 Tbsp sesame seed oil and about 1/3 c. sunflower seeds in place of the tahini paste. I used it as a spread on our sandwiches at lunch--that was a bit messy as it oozed out the sides, but very tasty on the toasted flatbread.
BLAHHHH! For those of you ladies who said you made this hummus for your first hummus are really missing out on a good hummus. I made it exactly as stated and it was flavorless. I added some cumin which is in regular hummus and more olive oil and it helped a bit but will not make this again. If you want a good hummus a can of garbanzos, 1/3 cup tahini, juice from a one lemon. Tbsp cumin salt, and pepper and add olive oil while its all blending and use lots of garlic. Then top with paprika cant go wrong.
This hummus is quit enjoyable. The taste of cucumber add a different twist. It is the first time I have made hummus and did stick to the recipe. The only negitive is that it is a bit thinner than the hummus I am used to. It could be that I added too much lemon juice (it was a large lemon) or the cucumber was too large. I will make this again.
I found this really good! I LOVE hummus & eat it all the time. I always use cucumbers to sip into the hummus, but never thoughts about adding them to the dip itself! The only thing I did differently was add about 1/4tsp of Beaumonde seasoning (along with the other listed spices). it is just a personal preference of mine. Very good recipe! Thank you!
recommend roasting the garlic first, otherwise the garlic taste is really strong....great recipe though
Wonderful!! The best hummus I ever tasted.
This was my first attempt at hummus and this recipe is easy, delicious and incredibly healthy. I also made the pita chips from this site. Definitely will make again. Thanks for sharing!
Was GREAT everyone loved it! I added 3 limes and Himalaya Pink Salt!
