Pampered Chef: Help! She wants HUMMUS!

Tags:
  1. Not only do I not know what hummus is, I had to look up the spelling to be able to ask about it!! I just got off of the phone with a host that's coming up on June 4th, and we're doing a dessert at the show and also she thought hummus would use a lot of the tools / be good to demonstrate...HELP! I have NO idea what it is!! I need a recipe and any other useful HUMMUS information!! Thanks!

    Hummus is made from ground up chick peas. It is very tastey. I do not have a recipe for it but I am positive you could find one on the internet. Hummus would be good served with tortilla chips or you could make your own chips using flour totilla, corn tortilla or even pita bread. You could show your pizza cutter and cut them all into strips and use your stone to bake them on. Good luck.
    Blessings,

    Hummus is a staple in our house, but you can't make it w/o a blender or food processor, to grind the chick peas/garbanzo beans. So you won't be able to just use PC tools. PB hummus would be weird- not typical. Usually it uses tahini butter. Let me know if you want me to post our family's recipe. It is really delicious!

    There is a PC recipe in the It's Good for You cookbook for a Quick Hummus Dip served with Rosemary Pita Chips, using pre- package hummus spread available at the grocery store. There may be other PC recipes including Hummus, you can do a recipe search in Consultant's Corner using hummus as the main ingredient.

    Hummus recipes

    On the PC web site, there's a recipe for Mediterranran Duo Dip. Also, Marg put a recipe on this web site called Warm Layered Greek Dip. That one is under Recipe Tips ~ Need a recipe for Canadian Season's Best F/W 2003. Both sound really good! Hope this helps!

    Delicious and Easy Hummus Recipe

    Not a PC recipe- but certainly can be made with PC things (except for the blender part). That reminds me, do you ever look around your kitchen and think "I wish PC made one of those!" I do!

    1 can chick peas, drained, but save the liquid
    1/4 cup tahini
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    salt and pepper to taste
    chopped parsley and olive oil for garnish

    Measure all the ingredients, except the garnish, into the container of a blender or food processor, and blend until the mixture is very smooth, scraping down the sides 2 or 3 times. Hummus should be a little thicker than sour cream. If it's too thick, add a spoonful or two of the reserved liquid from the can of chick-peas and blend again.

    To serve, spread the hummus out onto a platter, sprinkle with a little chopped parsley adn drizzle the top with a bit of olive oil. Serve with triangles of warmed pita bread for dipping.

    Makes about 2 cups.

    This recipe is from The Clueless Vegetarian by Evelyn Raab

    Erin,
    Why don't you tell your host that although that sounds yummy, you don't have recipes for hummus. Offer another suggestion instead.

    Have a quick hummus recipe!

    I just bought this great cookbook (called Four Ingredient Cooking) and I was browsing through and remembered your post for hummus. If you still need it, here it is! (really simple and easy)

    Ingredients
    14 oz can garbanzo beans, drained (you can use your Can Opener and the new strainer to demonstrate)
    4 tablespoons sesame seed paste (a good grocery store has this, can usually use your measuring spoons, just squeeze right out or fits in jar)
    2 garlic cloves, (chopped or pressed)
    juice of 1/2 - 1 lemon

    Directions:

    1. Using a potato masher or fork, coarsely mash the beans in a bowl.

    2. Mix the sesame seed paste into the bowl of beans then stir in the garlic and lemon juice. Season to taste with freshly ground pepper and salt, and if needed, add a little water.

    Serve at room temperature. Serves four to six people.
    You can also stir a little olive oil in.
    Serve with wedges of toasted pita bread

    Enjoy!
