This recipe makes a lot and it’s easy to cut in half if you need to. We’ve never had trouble eating it before it goes bad, so I always make a big batch since I don’t like washing my food processor more often than necessary.

When I first started making hummus I had a lot of lumpy hummus and I gave up for a while. But I eventually figured it out so you don’t have to. Here’s what you need to know: 1) Add enough liquid. 2) Puree it for a long time. That’s it! You’ll have delicious, smooth hummus if you follow this recipe.

I used tahini for this recipe for a long time. And then it happened: I went to make hummus and there was no tahini! I had been wanting to try peanut butter as a substitute for a while and it worked beautifully. The sun-dried tomatoes add amazing flavor so don’t skimp.

This is delicious served with fresh vegetables which is how we normally eat it. But some pita chips are a good option too, especially if you are trying to introduce this to someone who’s new to hummus.
