  • It's usually with the nut butters but if your store has a greek or middle eastern section (or - like mine - lumps all "foreign" foods together into one section and calls them "ethnic" lol) it might be in there.

    I make hummus by blending the following:
    1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed
    1/4 cup tahini
    1-2 cloves garlic
    salt
    a squirt or two of lemon juice
    blend in my food processor with olive oil to the consistancy I like. Oh, and if you add a few tablespoons of water, it makes it fluffier for those who like their hummus on the fluffy side.

  • You should be able to find it at any grocery store.
    Hummus is really easy to make, and home made is so much better than store bought; the finest is when you cook dried chickpeas instead of canned.
    This is the best hummus recipe on the planet: http://www.dedemed.com/index.php/Vegetarian-Recipes/Hummus.html (though I add cumin)
