Mainly it is, but I think these days, you can pretty much use just about any kind of bean you want. The only bean I have not seen used in hummus is pinto.... but I'm sure someone has tried it!

I truly think you are pushing your luck - but that's just me. Do beans last that long in the fridge? Do the ol' smell test. Bad beans pretty much stink

Here's a version using peanut butter instead of Tahini.

Hummus

2 cloves garlic -- (2 to 3)
1 can garbanzo beans -- drained and liquid reserved
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter -- (2 to 3)
A handful fresh parsley leaves
1 lemon -- zested and juiced
1 Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 Pinch kosher salt
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Chop the garlic finely in a food processor. Add the beans and process finely, adding reserved liquid as necessary to get the desired consistency. Add the peanut butter, parsley, lemon zest and juice, black pepper, and salt. Process until it forms a paste. Drizzle in the olive oil and process until it reaches the consistency of mayonnaise.

Hey girlie.. I've heard that it freezes really well. But I have not had any last long enough to freeze.

As for the peanut butter version.. that sounds awesome!!!! Never thought of peanut butter, but I don't see why it would not work. Thanks mcnerd!

The OP inspired me to grab my frozen hummus out of the freezer and have it on whole wheat toast for lunch. It freezes great, yum!
Also, I make my own tahini because the seeds are less expensive than having it already made and it tends to go rancid if it sits a long time. (all the oils are released)

Hey, how do you make your tahini? Just curious.
