“Hummus is yummus,” as the kids say (mine do, anyway).
Traditionally, hummus is made with chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, garlic and a bit of lemon juice blended together to create an creamy dip that’s addictive and packed with good fats. The wonderful thing about such a simple recipe is that there is so much room for experimentation; you can play around infinitely with amounts and ingredients to suit your taste. The only real rule is to keep it dippable so you can serve it up with a rainbow array of veggies, crackers or chips. Otherwise it would be hard to resist the temptation to gobble up this party favorite all by yourself within minutes!
Get that perfect creamy consistency with the Designer 725 from Blendtec: its 1725 watt, 3.8 peak horsepower motor makes short work of those chickpeas, and the 100-speed touch slider allows you to finetune until your blend is just right. No need for a food processor! The Designer 725 is your powerhouse food processor and blender in one. Trying new hummus recipes will become just as addictive as eating them.
Here are some new hummus recipes for you to make this weekend (we hear there’s some big game going on). We’ve got dessert hummus and low fat hummus, hummus made with white beans and lentils, buffalo butternut squash hummus and brown beer hummus. Hummus for any occasion— and really, wouldn’t every occasion be better with some hummus?
