Lebanese Hummus Recipes

Ohhh how we love our Lebanese Hummus Recipes! Each one has that smooth, luscious texture and flavor (that comes from chickpeas that have the peel or skin removed). Toppings and mix-ins abound with hummus as your base. Find skinless chickpeas, great tahini, and other ingredients for the best hummus in my shop!

Hummus with Lamb and Sumac.

Hummus with lamb and sumac is a luscious, healthy way to change-up your hummus fix by adding marinated, sauteed lamb atop smooth hummus. For some, texture is important because it bothers them.

Hummus with spicy sauteed red pepper makes a feast of a lunch. Keep homemade smooth hummus at the ready in the refrigerator, then the red pepper is a snap to prepare. The aroma of the saute is as divine as the hummus topped with red pepper is to eat. This recipe is vegan!, and gluten-free

Fresh Mint Hummus

The variation of herbs in the hummus is flexible—I like mostly mint, but I always add some basil to bring up the green color more, and it tastes great. But the skinless chickpeas are not flexible! Buy your chickpeas already skinned in my shop, or add 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda to drained canned chickpeas and heat them in a saute pan. Then immerse the chickpeas in a huge bowl of warm water and rub them til the skins fall off, draining and rubbing several times until every skin is gone. This recipe expands with ease. Finish the hummus with excellent olive oil.

Hummus with Olives, Pine Nuts and Olive Oil Crostini

 Hummus with olives, pine nuts, and crostini make for a beautiful, holiday-worthy appetizer. Healthy and luscious and lovely, all in one! Get out the good china!
