A simple tweak and Dorie Greenspan’s hummus became a new favorite version! And there are so many serving options, it can be jazzed up for a cocktail party or served with pita and veggies for a casual gathering!Spicy_Hummus

Dorie Greenspan’s Hummus

I would call myself a hummus purist…chickpeas, lemon, tahini, garlic and a bit of salt are whizzed in my food processor a couple times a month…no other seasonings or flavors needed. So garlicky, creamy and healthy, it’s quite simple to whip up your own. My go to recipe is from a dear foodie friend of Lebanese descent…and contains none of the chickpea liquid nor any cumin. Dorie’s version was only slightly different, but I was eager to compare the two. Such a simple recipe; you just dump and blend till it reaches spreadable consistency. I followed Dorie’s recipe to a T, adding the optional 1/4 teaspoon of ground cumin.

A Lovely Adaptation!

Dorie Greenspan’s hummus can be served with veggies or pita triangles, or put it in Belgian endive leaves or mini bell peppers for an elegant presentation. I LOVED this version. As you would expect, Dorie had the perfect combination of ingredients. Who knew a little cumin made such a nice impact???  If you’re interested in the recipe, it can be found in Dorie cookbook, Around My French Table.

  1. Oh, I’m glad you liked the cumin. It’s one of my favorite spices and an absolute must with any middle eastern type dish. I’m also a big hummus fan, especially on vegetables. But it’s a tie as to which one I prefer to dip pita into – hummus or tahini with lots of cumin and extra garlic. Yum!

  2. I love a aromatic and creamy hummus :)and this is just it ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I am a “purist” as well but I liked the cumin very much… the second time I made it for today’s lunch snack…yesterday’s was all gone! I ate almost all of it by myself!!!

  4. I am a big fan of creamy hummus, and yours looks so inviting! Lovely presentation as well!!

  5. Dear Lizzy, I love hummus. It is a perfect and healthy spread. I sometimes use it in place of butter on bread. I just love it. Blessings dear for a nice weekend. Catheirne xo

  6. I make hummus using cumin too. It really does add that special something to the dip. We love hummus in this house and eat if often xx

  7. such beautiful presentation! i love that you added cumin, my family is obsessed with cumin!

  8. Everyone seems to love this recipe! I’ll have to give it a try.

  9. Hummus is a staple in our house. I love your little hummus boats – so pretty.

  10. We’re hummus freaks here Liz and do love a little paprika in our somethings. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Your presentation is OFF THE CHARTS ! Well done. Sadly I never even thought of putting scoops of the hummus onto a veggie….and I even had those adorable little peppers in my fridge too. Just glad my family did not see your post so they don’t know what they are missing……:)

  12. Can never get tired of Hummus, anyway its prepared. Love, love it with the way you presented with the colorful bell peppers…yumm!

  13. Wow, that’s a recommendation. You are more of a hummus maven that I so I will definitely give this a try as I ease back into my Dorie make-up recipes. As you know, I substituted lima bean dip as a nod to my South American trip but certainly have hummus on the backburner for this week. Loved your presentation as well as your cudos.

  14. My daughter loves humus. I will pass this along. It looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
