Calling all hummus lovers

Rasam | Oct 1, 2010 01:05 PM

What is your favourite "variety" or "flavour" of hummus?

Do you only like the traditional plain kind (chick peas, salt, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil)?

Do you like cumin and/or roasted red peppers and/or cilantro/jalapeno, and/or other add-ons / add-ins?

Do you make your own or only store bought?

Right now I:

1. Rotate through a few favourites and am looking for more ideas. My family likes hummus a little more spicy than just plain, so I make it with cumin and red pepper added to the base recipe, then some different flavours (e.g. we have liked "Moroccan" - with cinnamon and honey; then roasted red pepper; then sun dried tomato; then ....)

Please give me your different f(l)avourites!

2. The plain kind (to me) is a blank canvas to add on all kinds of other ingredients

3. I now make my own - it costs so much less, and I can put in just what we like.
