Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Hummus is a Middle Eastern spread made from mashed garbanzo beans (chickpeas), garlic, lemon and often sesame oil. Serve our updated version like they do in Turkey. Make a depression in the middle of the bowl of hummus, and spoon in a tablespoon of olive oil.
  • tip 2
    If a food processor is not available, mash the chickpeas with a fork. The mixture may be slightly lumpy, but the texture does not interfere with the flavor.
