This is my favourite hummus recipe, ever!
I use it all the time and has been praised by my vegan friends as the best hummus they'd ever had (and I made it while I was drunk on that occasion, so that's gotta be praise to the recipe!)

Anyway, love it!
I always use these ingredients (minus the onion powder and using 1/2tsp granluated garlic instead of the cloves) as my basic hummus recipe. Tastes great with a tsp of cumin. You can also add in olive oil and tahini to taste and that's even lovelier. :)

Thanks, wondervegan!


This is  AWESOME. I can't make "real" hummus because I live in a small town and can't find tahini anywhere. So now I just make this! I like to make it with roasted red pepper because my boyfriend only likes that kind of hummus... But we both eat it up! Great with pita chips. THANKS :)


quick and easy! we added olive oil and some roasted red pepper and it came out great.


This hummus is very similar to my basic version I make all the time.

I enjoyed the addition of black pepper.  I also added a ton of olive oil and let it process forever until it was super-duper-creamy.
