This classic garbanzo bean dip is easy to make and a versatile dish. Serve hummus with fresh raw vegetables, on a piece of whole wheat pita bread or tortilla, on crackers, or as a sandwich filling.


2 cups garbanzo beans, cooked (chickpeas)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon sesame tahini ((sesame paste) or substitute peanut butter for a sweet taste)
2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Mash the garbanzo beans until smooth (if you have a blender, put the beans and lemon juice into it and blend).

2. Add the garlic, lemon juice, tahini and oil. Mix well.

Yum! I love hummus. This simple recipe is delicious as well as easy to make. I didn't have any lemon juice so I used fresh lime juice...tas-tee!

easy to make and healthy to eat Greetings, I am very fond of hummus. I cook the beans in a microwave, and add seasonings, especially Ba'har, Green-dried seasonings, cinammom, nutmeg and even some dried tomatoes are all good seasoning options to try. Never tried it with Peanut butter, though. That'll be my next recipe.
