“I make this hummus all the time. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it's healthier without the oil. Increase or decrease the ingredients as desired, especially the jalapenos! Serve with pita chips or fresh veggie slices. Add more of the reserved bean liquid for a smoother dip.” - by ELOVINGS
Original recipe yields 2 cups
- In a blender or food processor, combine garbanzo beans, jalapeno, cumin, lemon juice, garlic and 1 tablespoon of the reserved bean liquid. Blend until smooth.

Also, its a good idea to cover this with plastic wrap and then allow it to sit in the fridge for at least an hour so that all the flavors can mellow and mix together!"
"This hummous was excellent, and received rave reviews from my guests. I didn't miss the tahini, and loved the addition of fresh jalepeno, it was just spicy enough. Next time I will double the amount..." See more of the garbanzo bean liquid to 2 Tbsp. for a more smooth texture. But there will certainly be a next time!"
"This hummus was super easy and so good! I'm a "hummus snob" too. I was skeptical about leaving out the tahini. I added a bit more garlic, a tsp of black pepper, a dash of tamari, and a chopped up g..." See morereen onion to give it some of the flavors of my fave Moosewood recipe. Great! I'm getting ready to make my second batch. Thanks for the recipe!"
