Lena Freeman | Wed, Apr 26, 23Hummus is a simple and delicious dish that everyone should try making at least once. I got this recipe from my friend Kim, who learned it from her Lebanese friend many years ago. While some people suggest using canned beans, I highly recommend using dried beans for the best taste and texture. Canned beans can be used in a pinch, but trust me, it's worth the extra effort to use dried beans.
I like to add a little lemon zest to mine. If you like it a bit spicier, add a few small dollops of Harissa to the top as well. It is a hot chili pepper paste and can be found at Trader Joe's.
