You may also want to take a look at hummus I made before from “scratch”… from chickpeas that I cooked myself: Lemon & Coriander, Paprika and Sundried Tomato Hummus or Moroccan Style Hummus with Caramelized Onions and Roasted Peppers.

Hummus taste much better next day, can be stored for couple of days in the fridge.
