Though hummus is usually made with chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice, we mixed things up a bit this time and made it with a Mexican flair. We left out the tahini and lemon juice and added avocado, roasted jalapenos, lime juice, cilantro, and my son’s recommendation – curry. After he tasted a few grains of it we decided to add it to the final product. Curry provided just the right flavor boost we were looking for.
There are many ways to make hummus at home. Besides traditional and avocado hummus, you could make it with roasted garlic, roasted red pepper, olives, pesto, and much more. Take a look in your pantry and find the flavor combinations that interest you the most.
