Hummuses (Hummi?)

If you know me, you know I’m a fan of good hummus. Store-bought hummus is occasionally OK, but making it at home is much, much cheaper and usually yields tastier results.

Thanks to Dreena Burton’s entire chapter on hummus in her most recent cookbook, we’ve been able to try a lot of different types of hummus in recent months. While traditional hummus uses the mighty chickpea (garbanzo bean), we’ve really enjoyed some of the alternatives. The black bean and orange hummus is one of our favorites. It’s unlike any hummus you’ve ever tried and the light citrus touch makes it irresistable. Last night we made a white bean hummus with basil and thyme that’s really good on top of cherry tomatoes. We also enjoyed their roasted red pepper and almond hummus, while our daughter likes the kid hummus. We still have a peanut-sesame hummus to try.

What’s your favorite hummus concoction?

Is the kid hummus made with kids?

That wouldn’t be very vegan!
