I make a ton of that every week at work. The recipe is very basic like this one. I add a handfull of fresh parlsey also.

I love the stuff, but GF doesn't like the fact that I love it, if you know what I mean....

I guess that's for people who are allergic to legumes.

Here's a variation for you hummus-makers. It's no doubt good made with your home-cooked chickpeas rather than canned.

Spiced Carrot Hummus with Garlic Oil

1 cup peeled, chopped carrots
1 15-oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons garlic extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or more to taste
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Bring an inch or so of water to boil in a small pot fitted with a steamer basket. Add the carrots and steam until tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer the steamed carrots to a food processor fitted with steel blade.

Add the remaining ingredients and process for several minutes until thick and smooth, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Makes about 1-3/4 cups.

My local farmer's market lady gave me this recipe. I liked it.

I think once you have a basic hummus recipe that you like, you can add anything else to it for flavoring. I'm going to try a few of the variations mentioned here...Well, not the pork chops!

I play with hummus variations all the time. We like ours on the hot side, so there is always something to up the heat--jalapenos, chilpolte chili, cayenne peppers. I also like to add nuts--toasted walnuts + olives are one of my favorite combos. Hummus is so easy to make, takes 5 minutes in the FP, I don't know why s/one would buy it. I've been wondering if it freezes? Rock?

If you get on a hummus kick, you might as well learn how to make homemade pita bread. I have posted a recipe in "what are you baking today" for my basic recipe that I do in the bread machine (dough) and then in the oven.

I think the last one I bought in the store was chipoltle. It had a bit of a kick, but was not actually hot. I don't do hot. A dash of cayenne is usually enough for me.

I couldn't find the tahini, but at the checkout line they said they had it.
I'll be back Saturday, so I'll pick up some then. I'm on my way to making my own hummus.

Turn the jar of tahini upside down and leave it that way for at least a few hours. The stuff separates, with oil floating on top and hard stuff under it. Turning it upside down helps to mix and soften it.
