I recently had a really flavorful, really spicy hummus in a restaurant and have been trying my hand at concocting my own hummus recipes.

I want to hear what kind of spices and other ingredients you clever people use to perk up your hummus!

Here's my latest take on the dish:


I used a can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained), 2/3 cup tahini, 1/4 cup lime juice, juice from 1/2 lemon, 1 tsp chili powder, 2.5 tsp cumin, 1 tsp dried red pepper flakes (mild), 4 crushed garlic cloves, a pinch of garlic salt, and a few roasted red pepper pieces. It was a bit thick, so I thinned it with a little bit of virgin olive oil and the liquid from a jar of olives, then garnished the finished product with dried tomatoes, more pepper flakes, and an olive. Yummy!

Now share your tips, please!

I'm not one for spicy hummus, just heavily spiced.  I always go for cumin, maybe a little coriander, black pepper, salt, plenty of garlic and sometimes a handful parsley for color and a fresh taste.

The picture you took looks great.

I'm new to hummus making, so the only thing i've yet to use is roasted garlic and red pepper. Yum!
Oh, and a spoonful of olive salad in the middle (that's the stuff on mufalettas and such). So delicious for those of us who love olives.

Ooh, these are all good suggestions. I am especially curious to try a lime cilantro jalapeno variety!

Also, I wanted to add that I just ran across a recipe that included soy sauce. I'll skip the salt when I try it, but the tangyness could be just the flavour I'm after.

I tend to use a lot of garlic, and some parsley for colour.  Only recently did I try it with cumin-- what a difference!  Adding red pepper would be extra tasty if you added another kind of beans too, like black or pinto.  Yum!

Hmm, now I'm curious to try a garlic/basil/parsley/oregano combination with some sundried tomatoes...

i seriously recommend to try mix chunks of honey-roasted onions in your hummus. that's my favorite.
also you can mix feta (if you want feta and dried tomatoes) in.
