RECIPE FAQ

These are the most commonly asked questions when making everything bagel hummus, and the most helpful answers for recipe success.

HOW TO MAKE THIS A DAIRY-FREE HUMMUS RECIPE?

Instead of dairy cream cheese, use a dairy-free alternative like Kite Hill plain cream cheese made with almond milk.

ARE CHICKPEAS THE SAME AS GARBANZO BEANS?

Yes. Chickpeas and garbanzo beans are the exact same thing. Garbanzo is the Spanish-derived name for chickpeas.

HOW AND WHY TO PEEL (CANNED) CHICKPEAS?

Hummus made with unpeeled chickpeas will have a coarse texture. For smooth creamy hummus, peel off the skins. Here’s 2 easy ways to do it. 1. Rub drained beans between paper towels to loosen skins, then remove with your fingertips. 2. Drain and dry beans between paper towels. In a bowl, toss with baking soda (1 teaspoon baking soda per 1 cup chickpeas). Add coated chickpeas to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir constantly for 3 minutes. Rinse chickpeas in water 3 to 4 times while rubbing vigorously with your fingertips to remove skins.

HOW TO USE DRIED CHICKPEAS FOR THIS HUMMUS RECIPE?

In a large bowl, cover 1 1/2 cups dried chickpeas with 6 cups cold water. Soak overnight (they’ll double in size). Drain off water. In a large saucepan, combine beans with 3 teaspoons baking soda. Over medium-high heat, cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add 6 1/2 cups water to the pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook 30 to 40 minutes (skimming off skins and foam from the surface), or until beans are very tender but not mushy. Drain off water. You’ll have about 3 cups chickpeas, equal to 2 (15-ounce) cans. Proceed with hummus recipe.

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE EVERYTHING BAGEL SEASONING?

For 3 tablespoons of seasoning, combine the following spices in a small bowl: 1 1/2 teaspoons white sesame seeds, 1 1/2 teaspoons black sesame seeds, 1 1/2 teaspoons dried minced garlic, 1 1/2 teaspoons dried minced onion, 1 teaspoon poppy seeds, 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt.

HOW TO MAKE EVERYTHING HUMMUS MORE FLAVORFUL?

Try adding a bit of sugar. Store-bought “Sabra Everything Bagel Hummus” and “Boar’s Head Everything Bagel Hummus,” include a bit of dark brown sugar or granulated sugar to enhance the other flavors.

WHAT DO YOU DIP IN HUMMUS?

The most popular choices are crispy crunchy dippers. Try fresh veggies like carrots, celery, bell peppers, zucchini, jicama, grape tomatoes, and apple slices. Try crunchy bread items like bagel chips, pita chips, crostini and crackers. Or a traditional option: slices of warm pita bread.

HOW LONG WILL EVERYTHING BAGEL HUMMUS LAST?

If stored in an airtight container and refrigerated, homemade everything bagel hummus will last 2 to 3 days max. The store-bought versions last longer because they contain additives like potassium sorbate to maintain freshness. In eateries in Israel, fresh hummus is made in small batches with leftovers discarded at the end of the day.
