I came up with this recipe when my friend really wanted hummus as a side dish but I'd already planned a Japanese main course. To be honest, we were worried about the outcome, but it ended up being very good.

It was really refreshing, especially with the ginger and rice vinegar notes coming through.

With the price of hummus in the store, I decided to make some from scratch. Delish! I added a few finishing touches to some store bought tortillas to make the perfect snack at home.

This hummus has some sweet heat. Roasting the peppers before pureeing them give them a nice caramelization, and the habanero gives it some kick. Use as much of the habanero as you like; I used two-thirds of one in this recipe.

I was just going to say "yum", and start listing ingredients. But, I guess I could add that hummus is not some mystical, overpriced dish you can only get at fancy restaurants.

You can use on wholewheat biscuits or on toast. Rinse the chickpeas and add enough water and boil for 3 hours or until done.

I had some of the best hummus at a restaurant that isn't sharing its recipe. It was very rich. Got any suggestions?

It probably had a lot of olive oil in it and maybe some pureed eggplant in addition to the standard ingredients of garbanzo beans, garlic and lemon juice.

Basic hummus recipes are easily found with a Goggle search or if you live near a Trader Joe's they sell lots of different kinds of hummus and you can check the ingredients on the label if you find a variety you like and want to copy it.

Good luck!

This hummus was almost white.
I'm guessing that eliminates the eggplant.

If I hadn't discovered it after I'd tried the *whole* buffet, I would have had a lot more of it!

Hummus is pretty simple and richness is going to be a function of how much fat it has. There are two sources of fat in hummus: olive oil and tahini (ground sesame seeds).

The Silver Palate has a very rich hummus recipe with lots of olive oil.

Have you ever checked topsecretrecipes.com? They have lots of clones from restaurant food. I've made a few and they've all been pretty close. You can get a free recipe once a week, after that it's 79 cents I think. Good luck!

I make hummus by whizzing up a can of garbanzo beans (drained), a few cloves of garlic, a little salt, a little lemon juice, and a glob of olive oil in the food processor. I think it's pretty good.
