A Trio of Hummus

Trio of Hummus

Hummus is always a favorite at parties around here. I’ve made basic hummus and have added roasted peppers and made some with black olives, too. For a recent dinner my friend, Amy, made hummus 3 ways. She made the basic hummus recipe I use. She also changed things up by making a green hummus using spinach and cilantro and a pretty pink hummus with beets. Here are the directions for making them.


1 can garbanzo beans, drained, or about 2 cups cooked garbanzos

1/4 c. olive oil

2 T. lemon juice

2 T. tahini (sesame seed paste)

2 cloves garlic

salt and hot pepper sauce to taste

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Adjust seasonings. Chill. Serve with pita bread, crackers or fresh vegetables. Also nice spread in a pita bread with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce. Freezes well.

Green Hummus

Make the original hummus recipe from above but add 2 c. fresh spinach and ½ c. chopped cilantro.

Pink Hummus

Make the original hummus recipe from above but add 2-3 small cooked beets.

Note: You might want a little more salt in either of these recipes or a bit more lemon juice.
