Typically I view hummus as my enemy since I have a severe, life threatening allergy to sesame seeds (tahini). This recipe, however, is amazing and something I can eat safely! I need to find more tahini-free hummus recipes!
First time I've made my own hummus, and after looking at the other reviews, I doubled the sun dried tomatoes (eyeballed it) and added a little more water to get the consistency I wanted. I didn't double the garlic and I'm glad I didn't! I used two large cloves and it already has a very strong garlic taste. I think maybe next time I'm going to try roasting the garlic first, give it a little different flavor, but overall, good recipe and I'll make again!
Yummy! We make this ALL of the time now. It's so easy to put together, and it tastes really great. It's a super easy appetizer to take to a party. I like to always try and make my own pita chips to go along with it, but it's great with crackers, veggies, tortilla chips, etc. It's fun to play around with (add pine nuts, extra sundried tomatoes, etc.). I just try to hold off on adding too much oil so that it doesn't turn out too runny.
After making this initial recipe I decided it needed a little 'oomph', so I added red pepper flakes, a little olive oil and extra sun dried tomatoes, and a little more pepper. It really did the trick! I have this as a snack in my fridge always!
