Default a-hummunna-hummunna-HUMMUS!

Okay, so I made a post about hummus in a different thread and decided that hummus surely deserves its own thread.

So, let's talk hummus! Favorite brands or flavors, best dippers, recipes...you name it!

I really like the Sabre brand, roasted pine nut flavor being my favorite. One thing I like about the brand is that they don't mix in their flavors - they put them in the middle and allow the consumer to stir it up.

When I make it at home, I really like adding jalapenos and cumin....or artichokes and sundried tomatoes.

I love the Sabre pine nut flavor as well. I buy a big tub anytime I shop at Costco, it is way cheaper this way. Last time I was there I also bought a big pack on nan bread, heated it up on a skillet and ate it with the hummus. My biggest complaint is not enough pine nuts!

About the only national brand available here is Athinos. It's pretty good, but the local natural foods store makes its own hummus, which is wonderful. The garlic flavor is my favorite so far, but I never met a hummus I didn't like. Does anyone else here use it as a sandwich spread, and if so, with what do you like to combine it?

I'll use it on flat bread to make a roll-up, usually with grated carrot, sprouts and chickpeas. Yum!

I buy dried chickpeas and cook them in the crockpot - are you using fresh chickpeas? Just curious because of the shucking comment.

Dried or maybe they were canned..it was a long time ago haha... but you have to pop the little outer skin to get a really creamy consistency...atleast from what I remember

I use canned chick peas and shucked them the first time I made hummus, but I've found that if your blender has a strong motor (like a Waring professional) you don't really have to do that step. I do add a little liquid to help it along; a combination of lemon juice and olive oil works well.

I made red pepper hummus a few days ago because I needed to use up some red pepper spread with eggplant and garlic from Trader Joe's. It's petty good.

That is SO interesting! In all the recipes I've read, I haven't seen anything about removing the outer skin...maybe that's the reason my homemade hummus ends up being fluffier than pre-made....I'll have to try that! Thanks for the tip!

There's a greek place here who makes hummus and sells it through Whole Foods (you can get it from the original shop, too). They have a horseradish hummus thats amazing. I just tried a guacamole/avocado hummus from Trader Joes that was really good, too. Everything at TJ's is yummy.

I love the Sabra roasted garlic hummus. I got addicted to eating it with pretzel crisp after getting the single serving container. Of course, living in an area with a large Middle Eastern population, I'd prefer to get it from a local restaurant whenever possible.

My store finally restocked the tahini and i got myself a jar. So this weekend i'm going to be making a huge batch of hummus. I love dipping carrots and celery in it. I also like pita chips that you can get in the huge bag at Costco or some of the flavored ones at Trader Joes. We usually buy the Sabra at Costco but i'm trying to cut down on fat/calories consumed so home made is much less fatty. (i don't use olive oil on it) I love my hummus really garlicky too.

I love roasted red pepper hummus but haven't really tried a lot of brands. I should to a taste test.

Would all of you that make hummus be willing to share their recipe or their source? I've never tried making it but could be interesting. Thanks

Here's how i made my hummus:
2 cans of garbanzo beans (i use reduced salt). One drained of the juice.
Throw those cans in and juice of the one in a food processor. I'm going to try it in my vitamix next time.
then i add these:
4tbs tahini
3-4 tbs lemon juice
5 cloves of garlic

I add garlic and lemon juice until it has the right flavor for my taste. I am thinking of trying to add some sun dried tomatoes next time just for some change.. I made a big tub of hummus for maybe $2.. so it saved me a lot of money

I love hummus. I usually prefer it from the restaurants to store bought, however i forgot what the brand was, i think it was the athenos, they had it mixed with avocado, and it was delicious.

I sincerely dislike chickpeas. But hummus tastes nothing like chickpeas. Trust me on this.

My "recipe" is similar to Megan's....I'm pretty loosey-goosey about measurements, and just add this and that until it tastes right. Not very helpful, I know. I do add olive oil to mine and also a little salt and pepper.

One of my favorite ways to make it at home is adding a can of chopped jalapenos and maybe 1/2 tsp of cumin. I call it medi-mexi hummus.

I fear I might be a bit of a hoummus snob because I grew up in Dubai, i refuse to buy the packaged stuff because it just never tastes as good.

I too am a bit 'loosey goosey' with my measurements, but I make sure to soak the chickpeas overnight, and then boil them briefly before putting them in the blender with cumin, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and any extras I feel like (sometimes some pesto, parsley, or paprika)


I'm missing the awesome lebanese hoummus i grew up with

then i add these:
4tbs tahini
3-4 tbs lemon juice
5 cloves of garlic

I add garlic and lemon juice until it has the right flavor for my taste. I am thinking of trying to add some sun dried tomatoes next time just for some change.. I made a big tub of hummus for maybe $2.. so it saved me a lot of money
This is where I'm confused. I'm under the impression hummus is made with chickpeas but Megan says she makes it with Garbanzo beans and CrankySpice (sorry, I don't know your real name) said she makes is similar. Are they similar beans? I admit I've never cooked with either.

they are the same thing

It tends to be an American reference to call them 'garbanzo beans' from what I can tell

I eat mostly Sabra but Tribe is pretty good too.. love Sabras greek olive. We just got pizza hummus at the grocery store I work at.. I'm thinking about trying it but I'm a little leery haha. I love hummus though, haven't eaten a flavor I don't like yet.
