You can leave the oil out completely, for a healthy version, just add some of the drained liquid from the garbanzo beans, for the correct consistency.
Like several others, I also felt that 3/4 cup oil was too much, so used 1/2 cup and thought the consistency was just right. I served it with guacamole tortilla chips. Very easy and delicious.
This is a good basic recipe. However, here is a more succulent adaptation I came up with. I promise: you'll never buy store bought hummus again!
1/2 cup olive oil
1 can chick peas
4 Tbsp lemon juice
2 heaping Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
2 heaping tsp cumin
Blend all ingredients except beans in the processor on low. Add beans; process on high till smooth.
Yum! This was so good, and so quick and easy to make. I added lots more garlic and lemon juice than the recipe called for. I was wondering what it would taste like without tahini, (a staple in many other hummus recipes), and it was delicious. I had bottle of sesame oil on hand so I threw a splash in the hummus and it really gave it great taste. I also substituted olive oil for the canola oil. No more store-bought hummus for me! Thanks!
This is a good basic hummus, but needs more flavour. Next time I'd add herbs or cumin. I used only 2/3 of the oil and it was still way too much - half would probably be plenty.
