Rather than collecting flavored olive oils, I just add flavorings to the dish I'm making. It's much less expensive that way.

While my wife makes regular humus, often with garlic, I do make just that, and sometimes with some basil leaves chopped on the top.

I make hummus all the time. I taught the lads how to make hummus with chick peas, lime juice, garlic, tahini, sesame oil, roasted red pepper, smoked paprika, and lime zest. It was excellent. We just throw everything in the FB, taste, and go from there. I like to add black olives and jalapeno pepper....served with veggies or homemade pita.

FB? Did you mean food processor?

I almost always put black olives, usually Kalamata in my hummus. It really kicks up the flavour. Unfortunately, it tends to make the hummus a bit grey.

I did mean food processor. I do like to add cayenne EVOO and meyer lemon EVOO or Persian Lime EVOO. Not all of the EVOO, but some of it. And I prefer lime juice to lemon juice. Hint TL--use the black (brown) chickpeas when you want to add olives...or, add the olives after you mix up the hummus so they are not whipped around in the FP.

Oh yeah, black chickpeas would be the perfect way to hide that grey. Thanks.

when I make hummus I always put a pinch or three of cayenne in it.

Pickled jalapeņos are also a nice addition.

Cayenne-infused EVOO is even better than cayenne, just my opinion.

Having good EVOO and cayenne on hand is more versatile...

Looking for hummus variation recipes I'm looking to make a different flavor besides basic or roasted red pepper hummus. Any ideas out there? 3 stars 1 reviews
