Make the hummus Whirl 2 cans of garbanzo beans, 1 tablespoon tahini, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 garlic clove, and the juice of 1 whole lemon in a food processor, with a pinch of salt. Add water (the low fat version) out olive oil (the high fat version) until the hummus is the consistency of hummus.

  1. IMHO, tahini comes in jars that are much too large when you only need a tablespoon. I have brought tahini twice and twice it slowly sunk into a deep green-blue sea of fuzz. Try using seasame oil instead for that nutty undertone. Oh and did you see the article on Slate slagging off the schmucks who buy hummus?

  2. My personal solution to the Tahini Problem (and it IS such a problem! People are forever complaining about it) is to get rid of it altogether and use natural unsweetened yoghurt instead. It tastes better, the texture’s smoother, and whatever flavours you put in the hummus are more dominant. Love!
