Humus is normally made from chicpeas also called garbonza beens with garlic and herbs. You can get it from Trader Joe's.

hummus

nogeskog, you like Trader Joe's? Had an announcement that they were going to be two grand openings of the stores here in St Louis. I will visit them when the crowds die down. Are they pretty good? In price I mean. Sounds like some kind of health food store like Whole Foods. I like them.

In The Kitchen, they are absolutely awesome. They have a large variety of unusual goods, plus their own line which they guarantee. Their prices are between $1-2 less than supermarkets because they do not advertise. They kitchen test all their products before they import them. THey have fresh produce, most of it is organic, cheese, frozen imported stuff. They have a lot of unusual meats like buffalo, Australian lamb, all fish most of which is frozen. I do 80% of my shopping there. To give you an idea, here TJ's milk quart .89 market 1.29; sour cream $1.29 market 1.89, eggs 1.29, market 2.99, Stash tea 1.99 market 3.99. Try it and let me know how you like it.

Trader Joes ROCKS! The prices are great and the quality of their foods are fantastic. I really love the prepared Mexican food. The enchiladas, tamales, and all that stuff are so inexpensive, but so tasty. I keep a bunch in the freezer for when I come home and don't feel like cooking.

hummus

Here are some hummus recipes from vegweb.

http://vegweb.com/food/misc/index-misc-hummus.shtml


Trader Joe's is absolutely the best. I love that store. The have the best snacks, dried fruits, and nuts. One of my favorites is dried ranier cherries. Yum. I usually buy my wheat pasta there and soy milk. I also think that they have reasonable prices for shrimp, etc.

Can buy hummus at the supermarket, but it is so expensive.

Much cheaper to make it myself.

I always make it with canned garbanzos, but work with someone who claims it is much better if you make it from the dried chick peas.

Will probably try it one of these days, but the stuff from the can seems to work just fine.

Hummus

Do I appreciate this board? You bet I do! Have given me so many comments and responses plus where to find additional help, I do thank you. #1 son thanks you too. He enjoys eating the suggestions you provide. So grateful he is interested in trying to eat healthy. We all should. I know people are becoming more conscious of their diet due to the result of fast food eating and it just doesn't pay. Anything fast is not good. I only use the microwave for heating something never baking in it. I am also thankful I can eat the hummus and not have to deal with any physical problems. Seems easy to digest. As you said, auntdot, starting something from the beginning probably has more flavor and well worth it. I will investigate this after T hanksgiving or before if time allowed. Everybody eating turkey? Really starts to bother me that have to continue eating many days afterwards. But I am thankful for being able to buy a turkey and prepare it for my family. That is the idea about Thanksgiving not to think about eating but what we have to be grateful for. In fact, Thanksgiving should be celebrated everyday in some form or another. Like now I am grateful to communicate with all you generous people. I give thanks for you.

I'm so glad there's a thread about Hummus, as I've had a problem with it in the past. My problem is the tahini. It always tastes bitter to me, and I wonder if it's the brands I have tried. Can anyone recommend a really good tahini paste that isn't bitter?

Hi Everyone! I haven't visited for too many months. I was wanting to make some homemade hummus and this is the recipe I'm gonna try. It's so yummy! Thanks.

Anyway here is how I make it. Middie's recipe is similar the only thing is that I like to keep Tahini (Sesame paste) handy at home.

Garlic - 3 cloves
3 tbsp of tahini paste
1 can garbanzo beans
4 tbsp of olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
pinch of cumin
lots of chopped flat leaf parsley
paprika for garnish
salt to taste

Blend all the ingredients except paprika and parsley which are used to garnish the hummus.

Now to using it. The best thing to make with hummus is falafel. It's basically a dry bean powder that you mix with water and spices of your choice even herbs. Mix it all together to create a thick batter. Drop by tbsps into hot oil and then drain on paper towels

Serve on pocket pitas with chopped cucumbers, onions and tomatoes and a generous serving of hummus smeared. It's really very very good.

Hummus can also be used as a sandwich spread for roasted vegetable paninis or any other sandwiches (hot or cold).
