Hummus Dip Scented with Earthy Cumin

The addition of ground Cumin gives my version of the Mediterranean dip an earthy flavor that I love. Drizzle with some additional fruity olive oil when serving if your calories will allow it. Sprinkle with added lemon zest and fresh chopped Cilantro for color and a nice zip before serving. Garbanzo Beans are also known as Chickpeas. If you look closely at the bean it resembles a baby chick face. Perfect, it is spring after all.

Ingredients

  • Earthy Cumin Hummus Dip

  • Makes: 4 Cups (32 servings)

  • Serving Size: 2 Tbsp

  • (I listed this as making 32 servings, 2 Tablespoons for each. If you are like me you will probably eat 1/4 which would mean you have 16 servings instead.)

  • 3 1/2

    cups cooked, drained Garbanzo beans ( or 2 15 1/2 oz cans of Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans, drained and rinsed)

  • 1/4

    cup Olive Oil

  • 2-4

    Tablespoons fresh squeezed Lemon Juice

  • 2

    teaspoons Lemon Zest (from one lemon)

  • 2

    cloves fresh Garlic (germ removed) see note***

  • 1/2

    cup Tahini Sauce

  • 1/4

    cup yellow Onion, coarsely chopped

  • 1/2

    teaspoon Sea Salt

  • 1/2-1

    teaspoon gr. Cumin

Directions

Drain Garbanzo beans and place in food processor or blender. Add remaining ingredients to processor and blend for 3-5 minutes; stopping to scrape down bowl when necessary. If you are using a blender this will need to be done often to get everything down to the blades. Blend until smooth. Place the dip on a large serving platter, and surround with warm toasted flatbread, pita bread or fresh crisp vegetables cut for dipping. I always sprinkle on a bit more ground Cumin too, but then I like it earthy! This makes a lot of dip, but freezes well. Just divide into 1/2 or 1 cup bowls, cover and freeze.
