Walter’s Amazing Hummus Recipe
Last March my brother was kind enough to share his hummus recipe with me and give me his permission to share it. Finally, this week I decided I would make it since I had a friend coming over for lunch and I was trying to come up with something super-easy to prepare. As it turned out we changed our lunch to a dinner, and my husband and son joined us as well.
So not only is hummus a great appetizer, it can also be combined with other items to create a full meal. I served it with fresh bread, Caribbean Salad and corn on the cob. A perfect summer meal!
I hesitated to include the hot pepper rings at first, but Walter let me know that with just a few rings it doesn’t end up being hot–it just gives it a nice flavor.
Thanks Walt for sharing this great recipe! 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 can of chick peas
1 clove of garlic
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp sesame oil
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (he actually uses white but I switched it!)
1/4 diced red bell pepper (optional)
A few hot pepper rings

I am surprised to see that there is no tahini in this hummus, which definitely adds a distinct flavor and texture. I am sure it tastes good anyway!
Thanks for the feedback Henry! I’m not sure why he doesn’t use tahini in his hummus. Interestingly I never do either. For a long time I made my hummus with non-fat yogurt and a little sesame oil. I think I’ll try adapting Walter’s recipe to add tahini!
I can attest that it was delicious! 🙂
I like the red pepper addition!
