A really well-made hummus bi tahini is a thing of beauty, with complex, balanced flavor. It’s likely familiar as a dip for vegetables, but try adding it to burgers, noodle salads, deviled eggs or salad dressing.


2 cups cooked Pedrosillano or York White garbanzo beans (about 1 cup dried beans)

1 clove garlic

1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste)

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)

1/2 cup water

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, or to taste

1/4 teaspoon cayenne, or to taste


Extra virgin olive oil


In a food processor or blender combine the garlic clove, tahini and lemon juice and process for one minute.

Add the chickpeas and process until smooth. Add water, a little at a time, to achieve desired consistency.

Add the cumin, cayenne and salt, then process. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Transfer to a serving bowl, smooth top and drizzle with olive oil.

Cooking tip: For additional flavor, reserve the garbanzo bean cooking liquid and use it as a replacement for the 1/2 cup water in this recipe.

Note: You'll find our Pedrosillano chickpeas, known as "the hummus bean," in the bulk departments of all PCC stores.
