Making Hummus for the First Time

jessinEC | Feb 13, 2011 07:07 PM

Hi -- I want to start making my own hummus. I'm not sure if it's a national brand, but the flavor I'm trying to reproduce is Sabra brand. (I have kids and they like hummus if it's mild and balanced.) I have a couple of questions. First: what type of olive oil would work best? I'm actually about to buy some more, so it's a good time to try something new. My local butcher has a whole variety available in bulk. Second: how much better is it to start with dried chick peas compared with canned? I'm planning on adding cumin & lemon juice as well -- is there anything else you'd recommend? (Again, I'm not looking for spiciness.) Thanks!
