Re: Holy good Hummus (semi-homemade... no tahini!)

ok, here's my hummus recipe that i got from a friend. it calls for tahini but i didn't have any so i made it anyway without and it was sooo good. i made it a week later with tahini and i didn't like it as much. so definitely give this a try if you don't like/don't want to use tahini. i'm going to try the hummus w/cream cheese recipe next...

15 oz can chickpeas (drain, reserve liquid)
1/2 tahini (i don't use this, better without i think!)
1/4-1/2 cup water (i use the reserves chickpea liquid)
1 1/4 t kosher salt
2-3 cloves of garlic (to taste)
3 tbls EVOO
5 tbls lemon juice (I like more)
fresh ground black pepper

In food processor, obliterate garlic (or mince, this makes the taste stronger though so b aware of how much you use). Add chickpeas, lemon juice, salt, tahini. Blend. Add water/chickea juice a little at a time until desired consistancy. Drizzle in olive oil. Continue to mix in processor. Done. yummy
