    Many people buy prepackaged hummus from the grocery store.
    I am here to tell you that fresh homemade hummus tastes alot better.
    Just find a kosher hummus recipe on the internet.
    Then process all the ingredients in a food processor, blender or food grinder.
    In a few minutes you will have better tasting hummus.
    Eat it fresh then cover save the rest in your refrigerator.

    But then you have to wash your blender.

    My wife used to make hummus, but she stopped when she realized she wasn’t saving any money by making it herself.

    Home made food is supposed to be better. However store bought is cheaper and easier. That applies to almost anything, not just hummus. So there’s really no hiddush in the original posting.

    So you’re saying that any hummus recipe I find on the internet will be better than the stuff I buy in the store?

    I doubt it, and it’s not even worth my time to figure out if it’s true.

    Well sometimes it doesn’t.
    For Instance store brought pizza tastes better then homemade.

    I’ve never found any store bought blintzas that tasted even half as good as home made blintzas.

    store bought food is easier but almost never cheaper.

    I agree with Kitov. I have done it myself numerous times (a habit I picked up from Israel). It is sure more cost-effective unless you just use a small amount.

    All you need is a 1/2 pkg of Garbanzo/Chickpea beans (or a can or two – is much easier), Techina paste, fresh squeezed lemon juice, fresh crushed garlic, olive oil, water and salt.
    Store bought have all that preservatives plus etc.

    RY, you can use a hand blender as well. And you are Yotza your deed of ‘Lekavod Shabbos’ preparation.

    Maybe as soon as people stop calling them “hand blenders”. I like my hands the way they are.

    RY and anyone else not wanting to wash to food processor…

    You can make deliciously flavored techina using sesame seed paste (some brands settle more than others, and are almost glued to the bottom of the container, so find a good one) and mix USING ONLY A FORK.

    My basic recipe without exact amounts, sorry I’m too much of a free bird when it comes to recipes…

    Sesame seed paste, about equal amount of water which makes it liquidy, but then magically thickens as you mix, a nice splash of lemon juice, dried minced garlic, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and red pepper flakes – add all seasonings to desired taste or skip whatever you’re not a fan of…

    Enjoy!

    Good to know: don’t buy too a large jar if you’re not feeding a lot of techina lovers as the paste will spoil after a few months in the fridge. The finished product probably lasts a few weeks.

    “takahmamash: Is everything about money? What about good-tasting homemade food??”

    Joseph, there are only two of us home full time now. The homemade hummus doesn’t last as long, because it doesn’t have the preservatives that the commercial stuff has. I love hummus, I love my wife’s hummus, but I can’t eat all the hummus before it would begin to turn bad.

    When we first made aliyah, we had 3 kids living at home full time; we’d finish a 1 kg container of hummus about every 10 days. We don’t even buy that size container anymore, because there’s no one home to eat it.
