I like the idea of using roasted red bell peppers (love them) and roasted tomatoes, I think that will give it a super flavor. Thanks for everything.
Can't go wrong with a higher horsepower outboard motor.. ;)

If you do use salt, consider a Kosher salt or a sea salt. It imparts a totally different, cleaner flavor than iodized salt.

I usually put kalamata olives in my hummus. Any tasty black olives will add a great flavour to hummus.

Tax I use Kalamata evoo to make my hummus, I then chop some cooked chick peas and toast the with pine nuts as a sprinkle.
Red hummus, roast peel and de-seed red peppers and stick them in the blender.

lemon juice, pinch of cumin and cayenne and even a bit of mint will perk up dull hummus.How you season it really depends on personal taste and regional custom. good olive oil and smoked paprika will also make a dish blossom.

Damien,

Help again, I am not a salt connoisseur at all, as a matter of fact, if you eat my food, it lacks salt. You have to add your own. What is the difference in the taste of Kosher and Sea salt. Is one stronger than the other? Should I off my iodized salt from my pantry?

You obviously know alot about cooking. Do you make you own Kalamata evoo or can it be purchased?
I definately have to try this roasted red pepper Hummus.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Don't forget to add some cumin to the hummus!

Wow is that interesting, I will be doing a lot of experimenting today. Can't wait to try all these excellent suggestions.
What a great forum.

Salt isn't very expensive. Buy some of each and do some taste testing.

Iodine was put into salt to help prevent goiter (bulge in the neck indicating thyroid problems). If you decide that the other kinds of salt are noticeably better tasting, don't get rid of it just yet. Make sure you know that you (and other people who eat your cooking) are getting enough iodine some other way, e.g., multivitamins (but read the label).

Great idea, and great information about salt.

Thanks so much!!
