Recipe #41: Hummus!

I LOVE hummus, and decided it was about time I made it myself. I found a great recipe on I used dried parsley because that's all I had, and added more garlic. I might add more lemon next time, but this is a great base recipe that I'll use over and over...


  • 2 cups canned garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley


  1. Place the garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a serving bowl.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the garbanzo bean mixture. Sprinkle with paprika and parsley.


  1. btw, 2 cups of garbanzo beans is about a can's worth...

  2. that sounds really good! I will try it sometime soon. I love hummus!

  3. Is this recipe comparable to Alladins Restaurants Hummus??

    I like hummus but im really picky and really only like Alladins.....

  4. i'd say yes, as far as how much i love both. you gotta try the hummus at that sittoo's restaurant on snow road across from st charles...
