Hummus is a creamy puree of chickpeas and tahini (sesame seed paste) seasoned with lemon juice and garlic, and is a popular spread and dip in Greece and throughout the Middle East. Hummus can be served as part of a meze platter; with bread or vegetable crudités for dipping; as a spread or filling for pita, lavash or Turkish pide bread; or as a tasty, creamy alternative to butter in sandwiches. A spoonful or two can also be added to Middle Eastern or Greek-style pilafs and stews to add richness.

2 cloves garlic—roughly chopped
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup water
14 oz (400g) canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans)—rinsed and drained
½ cup tahini
1 teaspoon sea salt

Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth, scraping the sides occasionally.
Variations: If you like a spicier hummus, add a small red chili (chopped) or a pinch of cayenne pepper, or try a little cumin for a more exotic variation.

Tip: Prepare extra quantities of hummus—it can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 1 week and frozen for up to 3 months.

my wife is crazy for this stuff, its quite expensive to buy for very inexpensive to make. I will pass on your recipe, not sure how she makes it

I have an insane addiction to hummus. I just absolutely love it, particularly variations on the traditional... yummy. It's nice to make a little mountain of hummus, make a little hole in the middle and fill it with red olive oil for dipping flax pitas in.

I tried this recipe Friday night. It turned out very nicely...
I made one addition/alteration, however.

Instead of the 2 cloves of roughly chopped garlic I added 8 freshly roasted garlic cloves and added no additional salt.

Love it!
