    muncheechee's Note:

    I've tried a lot of hummus recipes but this is the first one that came close to Sabra - my favorite brand. I adapted this recipe from one I found online at a blog by Jonah Lisa. She states that it is the order in which the ingredients are combined that makes the hummus so creamy in the end. I don't know how true that is but I follow her method and always end up with great stuff that rivals my favorite brand. I use my blender but I'm sure a food processor would work great too.

    1. 1
      Combine tahini and lemon juice and blend until smooth and frothy.
    2. 2
      Add garlic and salt and blend again.
    3. 3
      Add olive oil and 1/3 can of chickpeas and blend until smooth.
    4. 4
      As you incorporate the rest of the chickpeas, add small amounts of the reserved chickpea liquid to thin the mixture to allow easy blending.
    5. 5
      You will know when the consistency is right when the mixture moves thickly but easily inside the blender.
    6. 6
      When everything is incorporated and the consistency allows for easy blending, leave the blender on for a minute. This is a good time to add any additional spices to taste. I love the addition of smoked paprika and a dash of cumin. You may also want to add more garlic, kalamata olives, jalapenos, pine nuts, roasted red peppers, or anything that strikes your fancy.
    7. 7
      Serve with toasted pita bread, wheat crackers, tortilla chips and/or vegetables.
    8. 8
      Hope you enjoy!

      We enjoyed this hummus recipe very much. I added more salt, some cumin and a bit of cayenne to give it a "kick". Easy to make in the blender. As the recipe states, you can make different versions of this hummus by adding additional ingredients. Made for Fall PAC, October, 2012.
