Alison’s Hummus

My Cousin and her husband are fantastic cooks which comes as no surprise since they are huge urban farmers. We did a story on their gardens with many photos, check them out here.

Recently, Alison posted her recipe for creamy hummus.  While I’ve been making hummus for years, mine is not always that creamy, so I tried her recipe.  It is very creamy.  So, I asked her permission to share with you.

I’ve added some comments.

Alison’s Hummus

Dissolve 1/2 tsp baking soda in 6 cups of water, add 2 cans of drained Garbanzo beans, bring to a boil & then simmer for 20 mins. 

Run beans under cold water to cool & remove all the skins, which is the key to super creamy hummus.  [Removing the skin takes a minute!  Try putting beans in a tub of water since the skins float.]

Combine 4 cloves minced garlic, 1/3 C. lemon juice, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/4 C water, blend well and then add 1/2 C. tahini, 2 Tb olive oil, blend to finish. {I love cumin but I was not a fan of it in hummus.]

Garnish with toasted pine nuts, paprika & olive oil😋
