    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    The flavor possibilities are endless! Even when they are sale, the tubs of hummus in the markets are a bit pricey. Take the time to make your own. It's really easy and lower fat because I use the bean liquid for moisture instead of streams of olive oil or tahini. I got two hugely genuine, UNSOLICITED comments from my mother AND grandmother (that's BIG, believe me...) I also like to open people's minds a bit. My family, just the night before, had proclaimed their determined hatred for anything "curry" or "cumin". After they gobbled this hummus for several minutes, and asked me how I made it, I proudly proclaimed the spice combo I used! Give everything a chance! Who knows, you might actually like it : > This recipe can easily be doubled.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sauté the onions in the oil for about 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add minced garlic and spices and sauté another 2 minutes or until fragrant.
    3. 3
      Be sure to keep stirring to avoid sticking or the garlic getting too dark.
    4. 4
      Drain the chickpeas, reserving their liquid.
    5. 5
      Add them to a blender or food processor with just enough liquid to blend.
    6. 6
      If using a blender, like I have, be patient, and keep scraping down the sides.
    7. 7
      Once chickpeas are somewhat smooth, add the sautéed onion, garlic and spice mixture from the stove and blend until combined.
    8. 8
      Scrape into a bowl and add lime/lemon juice if using, and fold in fresh parsley or cilantro.
    9. 9
      Serve with grilled pita or as a dip for fresh veggies.

      this was perfect b4 itossed in all the lemon and lime juice. should have used half of 1 lime i think or as directed "to taste". It is still good but runny and a bit tart now. Thanks for another good recipe kosmic blue!
