Hummus is a spread made from chickpeas and ground sesame seeds (tahini).  It’s hugely versatile — it can be a sandwich spread, vegetable dip, grilled pita topper, and much more.

Basic hummus is a mixture of either a can or 2 cups of cooked dried garbanzo beans – chickpeas — same thing with two different cultures’ names.  Mix that with 2 tablespoons of tahini or 4 tablespoons of ground sesame seeds — again, same thing — add whatever you want, for instance a clove of garlic and a strip of roasted red pepper — and blend.   Add some lemon juice and/or olive oil if you want.  You can blend the seeds, chickpeas, garlic and any mix-ins all as one quick operation.

Here’s’ a more elaborate recipe that gives a pleasant and inexpensive result every time.
