    1. I have tried making a version of hummus without garlic that is plain, no spinach.
      I used this recipe as a base and added a bit of miso paste (miso is a fermented soybean paste, a sort of cousin of soy sauce, from Japanese cuisine; I found one made locally in Tuscany from chickpeas and millet and used that). I think miso can help in some recipes where garlic would give food a bit of depth, such as sauces, soups and dips.

      Another nice addition to hummus would be sumac if you can find it.

  1. hi manjula ji,thank u so much for the recipe.this seems so full of nutrients. i was wondering what is shelf life of this?? i mean if i keep in fridge,how long it will stay fine?
    2nd ques is abt use of olive oil.can i skip that?
    3rd ques is abt chick peas, if i use normal chickpeas,i need to soak them n steam them in pressure cooker before using them??

  2. Hi Aunty,
    I had a quick question, did you roast the sesame seeds or did you use roasted sesame seeds that you get at Indian grocery stores?
    Please reply soon.
