A really well-made hummus with tahini is a thing of beauty, with complex, balanced flavor. It’s likely familiar as a dip for vegetables, but try adding it to burgers, noodle salads, deviled eggs or salad dressing.



In a food processor or blender combine garlic, tahini and lemon juice; process for 1 minute. Add garbanzo beans and process until smooth. Add water, a little at a time, to achieve desired consistency.

Add cumin, cayenne and salt and process. Taste and adjust seasonings. Transfer to a serving bowl, smooth top and drizzle with olive oil.


Canned beans are fine in this recipe, but we suggest cooking a pot of Pedrosillano cafe garbanzo beans to try the difference. Available in our bulk department, this variety of bean has a creamy texture and nutty flavor that is perfect in hummus.

For additional flavor, reserve the garbanzo cooking liquid and use it as a replacement for the 1/4 cup water in this recipe.
