How to Make Hummus

I have heard so much about Hummus and, I have to tell you, I didn't know what it was. Being one who loves to cook, I just had to research it and see what it's all about. I was so surprised to learn that this popular dish is kind of a "souped up" bean dip. Of course, garbanzo beans are not what you would typically use for a bean dip but the "concept" it to use a bean base and add "stuff" to make it into a thick, rich dip or filler. So, in case you are like me and lost as to what it is or how to make it, here's the recipe:

1 can (15 oz) Progresso® chick peas (garbanzo beans), drained, reserving 1/3 cup liquid
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup sesame seed
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 teaspoon salt
Chopped fresh parsley
Pita bread wedges, crackers or raw vegetables, for dipping, if desired

1. Place beans, reserved bean liquid, lemon juice, sesame seed, garlic and salt in blender or food processor. Cover and blend on high speed, stopping blender occasionally to scrape sides if necessary, until uniform consistency.
2. Spoon dip into serving dish. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with pita bread wedges.

This looks delicious, but I have to tell you about this snobby, snob former friend of mine who originally took credit for introducing me to Middle Eastern Food. When I told her that I'd like to try making my own she scoffed at me and told me that it's a lot of work because you have to peel each chick pea individually.

we actually just tried hummus and I didn't like it, but Monkey and Hubby did so I was thinking maybe if I made it I would like it. I'll try this

Oh my...we are huge hummus fans in our house! I actually buy it already prepared. It comes in a ton of yummy flavors! I bought some garbanzo beans a while back so I could try making my own. I think it is much cheaper to make than to buy already prepared. I haven't made it myself yet, but your recipe has me wanting to get into the kitchen to do just that.
