Been making my own hummus lately....easy and cheap to make and 10times better then anything store bought. Start with a can of garbanzos, add some tahini, some garlic, a bit of olive oil, and a dash of spice in the food processor and your good to go.
Ive since made the same recipe with feta cheese, olives, and sundried tomatoes and every combination thereof. Once again cheap and easy to make and much better the TJs premade stuff.

I concur with this thread.
Control how smooth/creamy you want it with the garbanzo bean juice/water. Blend/process it all, and sprinkle liberally with sumac.... Bake some pita to make it all crispy and delicious. Holy crap, is that some good stuff.
Is it lunch time yet?

Add a scoop of home made Bruschetta on top of homer Hummus and a toasted Baguette slice and you have a ****ing party going on!
The smooth, alkaline texture of the Hummus and the chunky, acidity of the Bruschetta just cant be touched. Mixed with a good Marzen (Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest for me) and you're in heaven.

I don't know why I haven't tried making my own hummus.
But I should. I like TJ's kind, but it could be cheaper or have a larger quantity.

Just bought a can of garbanzos, gonna give it a go. Forgot the tahini though - they have it at TJ's?
