Original Vegetable Hummus Recipe

Hummus (Arabic)

Hummus is a Arabic dip made of mainly white chick peas. It is a ancient recipe. It has a great source for vitamin C, iron, folate and vitamin B6. It is most eaten with the pita bread. I love to put it on bagels

Recently I learned how to make hummus and thought how great would it be when mixed with other vegetables. Of course there's garlic, chives, and onions but I'm in it for the green. I went through a lot of testing to get it to a point where it's creamy and the best way was a blender or a food processor on blend placed on the lowest speed.

If you want to make hummus with beans that you have to pre soak the it's best that be done the day before. If your using peas out of a can then your off to the blender. Using garbanzo beans that are fresh it will improve the taste of the bean. This recipe will make you enough hummus for up to 3 weeks and will stay fresh, I'll teach you how.

My Original Vegetable Hummus Recipe


What you'll need:


3 cans of garbanzo beans

1 cloveof garlic

4 tablespoons of Olive Oil

1/2 cup of roasted tahini

4 tablespoons of lemon juice

1/4 bush of cilantro

1/4 pound broccoli

1/5 pound of fresh celery

salt

pepper

1/4 pound of scallions

1/4 pound of parsley


Directions:


This recipe is real simple because it's a blender recipe. Peel your garlic and place it in the blender at the bottom first. Place your choice of cooking gadget on low. Now place all the ingredients in the blender and place the setting to BLEND. The mixing should take about 5-7 minutes. You can take a look at it occasionally because you might want it creamier. Just add a bit more olive oil if it's not as smooth as desired.

There are so many other ways you can make hummus. Here's a couple more blender combinations that taste great. With the same directions different ingredients.

This is really interesting. I never thought of making my own hummus let alone putting some many veggies in it. Good idea and looks healthy.

The first one is real similar to a recipe I got while working in a Greek reataurant except for the broccoli and celery. I look forward to trying both of these, thanks.

I love hummus. I have tried to make it before but never had good luck. Mine was very gritty. I will give this a try and hopefully will have delicious humus. I love to eat it on sundried tomato basil crackers. Thank you for sharing.
