    Default hummus among us

    I've been eating more hommos lately. Is it fairly easy to make? I've never
    tried but instead of buying store bought I should make my own. I could try
    just something simple like hummus with garlic maybe.

    I don't like pasty hummus (Athenos seems kinda pasty to me). I like the
    Sabria a lot but it is a bit pricey. Trader Joe's is very good, but not one
    near me. Not in bike range anyway. There was a brand I loved, but they
    don't have around here anymore. Oasis. It was lowfat. They made a great
    black bean 0 fat. I hate when products I love just disappear one day
    without warning and never come back. There was a gardenburger I loved.
    Called something like American Classic. Even diehard carnivores would
    mention how it smelled so good. But Kellogg or such bought the company and
    dropped that variety.

    Anyone know of Oasis products?

    I love the stuff they sell at Costco in the individual cups. I will eat the
    Athenos but I prefer a different texture.

    I have never made it although it looks dead easy to make. It's just so
    concenient and cheap to buy.

    My mom made it once and it was inedible. I have a feeling that the tahini
    she used was either rancid or she used waaay too much of it.

    ha! Reminds me when I was growing up (one of five kids) one of our
    favorite questions was: what's for dinner? My mother upon hearing it for
    about the 10th time in one day would whisper: "poison"

    She was actually a very nice quiet person. So it was kinda funny and out of
    character.

    That sounds like the kind of thing I would say. My daughter will ask me. I
    will answer. Then she'll ask me again, totally forgetting that I already
    told her. Often I will just make up something bizarre to see if she is
    listening.

    How old is your daughter? How often is she actually listening... I like
    your strategy.

    If you're going to consider making your own hummus, also look in to baba
    ganoush...

    I'm trying to grow eggplant again, but it's not going well. And even when I
    had a couple great looking ones last year, when I went to harvest they had
    hole in them. I suspect a worm? I didn't look too close... It was
    disappointing. They looked so good till I turned them over.

    I do like ganoush too. Don't have a blender though. Maybe I can make
    chunky ganoush. I like chunky applesauce.

    Yes very. If you have a blender or food processor it only takes seconds
    to make delicious, healthy hummous with pure ingredients; none of the
    crap and preservatives found in commercial products.

    Yep. Definitely tabouli/hummus weather. I love celery
    dipped in homemade hummus.

    Canned chickpeas are OK. Nothing in the can but chickpeas, water, and
    salt. Not so sure about the tahini, but you can find tahini at most
    health food stores, so that's a good sign. Here's a good starting
    point:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4uSf0d5yhw

    I refuse to discuss yogurt and citric acid, other than to say they are
    totally unnecessary. You decide. I may try some cumin in my next
    batch.

    enjoy

    You owe yourself a trip to the Mediterranean to try the real thing.
    Yes, you can make it yourself, it's not difficult. A common way to
    serve it is with Techina (basically Tahini with salt and lemon juice,
    thinned with water) - that's my favorite.

    Thanks. I'm trying to stay away from acidic things so will try without...
    celery sounds interesting. I like hummus on crunchy things like no salt
    blue chips, or carrots. Maybe I will try on celery. I've never actually
    bought celery in my entire life because I hate it, but with hummus on it, it
    may be good. I've tried pb on it, but all it did is ruing the peanut
    butter.

    I am going to a health food store in the near future so will see if they
    have that.

    IMHO, far better than a health food store is an ethnic neighborhood
    where this is a popular native cuisine item. Start by wrapping your
    taste buds around what it's supposed to taste like before you look at
    alternatives. My first choice would be Arab - an Egyptian, Lebanese, or
    similar restaurant in a neighborhood of people native to that land. (I
    wouldn't go to the Lebanese restaurant in my own neighborhood - good,
    but not the same thing.)

    Yeah. Nice if you gottem!

    I'm remote. We only have two ethnicities. Young and old. Both go to
    health food stores. Specially now that our primary supply of food is
    becoming so polluted and toxic.

    I'm in Louisville, ky. Not sure we have those! There was a new store in
    the Highlands that was middle eastern, but it closed before I got the chance
    to check it out. Was only there about 2 months.

    funny thing is my mom pretty much made the same thing every week, so why did
    we ask her? There was chicken on Sunday, meatloaf Monday, Spaghetti and
    meatballs Tuesday... fish on Friday. (My parents were real "meat and
    potatoes" people) About once a month she would get a little wild and have
    pancakes for dinner. But I never liked that. Pancakes are for breakfast,
    not dinner!

    We only had pancakes when we were too poor for anything else. We didn't
    have a lot of variety in our meals either.

    Walmart, leastwise the ones in the metro Detroit area, sells tahini.
