My absolute number one dip favorite from the Board is ShellMarr's Artichoke Hummus - it's fabulous. Heather's Smoky Eggplant Hummus in EFI is excellent, too, but more work. For something really unusual, you could try the White Bean and Almond Dip from EFI - I love that stuff.

You can also check out this recent thread for some more ideas. I saw it too late to chime in, but a recent show on the Food Network had some suggestions for spiffing up store-bought hummus. Try adding lemon zest or fresh cilantro or chopped olives or roasted garlic or chopped parsley and red pepper flakes to it.

I also love guacamole - Heather's in EFI is fabulous - and you can check out this post for something much easier (I haven't tried this yet, I just found green Tabasco).

HTH. Enjoy your party.

Being half Lebanese, I'm somewhat of a hummus purist. I'm not really one for all the variations and whatnot. Here's my recipe: web page

If you're going to go with storebought, I like Cedars Lemon variety. It's pretty close to the real thing.

How might I go about getting a copy of this cookbook? I love to try new foods...why not Lebanese?

I followed your recipe and there is a taste that I don't think I care for...it's a strong flavor, one that I don't recall tasting in the Hummus I buy from the store. Do you think it is the tahini?

I might try to make it without the tahini.

How do you store it? Does it ever go bad? I have had some for a couple years now and am afraid to use it again, not sure if it could go bad.

Thanks

I would say try reducing the Tahini, like use 1 TBSP instead of 4 TBSP. Then if you you want it creamier just add more liquid from the chickpeas. I also like a small amount of cumin in mine (like 1/2 - 1 tsp).

Thanks...however mine came from a whole food store (they dipped it out into plastic containers) so no expiration date and also they did not have it refrigerated so I kept mine in the cupboard all this time!!

It don't smell bad, but Yikes,Maybe I should throw it away

No problem, didn't realize how much fat was in it, but I guess it is oil based

I don't usually make mine with Tahini, only add a little when I think of it. This is the recipe I normally use (I like the zest/spiciness of jalepinos, and it is low fat):

because that's what my mother does! I'd say the only way it could go bad would be if the oil turned rancid, and you'd definitely be able to smell that. I think if you kept it in the fridge it would coagulate too much and not have the right consistency.

The one I use most was sold at my church about 10 years ago, and I think they just had a small book binding place do it. But, I can reccommend the middle eastern cooking bible. Everyone I know swears by: The Art of Syrian Cookery: A Culinary Trip to the Land of Bible History-Syria and Lebanon (Paperback)
by Helen Corey

Check it out on Amazon.com. Most of my mother's recipes come from a combination of this book and my grandmother's tricks.

Hope that helps!
