Mead School District found a way to save costs and add hummus to its menu. “Tahini paste is expensive, so one of our assistant managers, Mary Epley, came up with this recipe that omits it and still tastes great,” says Child Nutrition Director Kim Elkins. The district uses the hummus in wraps for a veggie option or as a veggie dip.  

Ingredients

3 qt. garbanzo beans
3⁄8 cup minced garlic
2 tbsp. red Tabasco sauce
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup canola oil
3⁄4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. ground cumin
3⁄8 cup roasted sweet red peppers, chopped
1 1⁄2 tsp. ground cilantro or
2 1⁄4 tsp. fresh, finely chopped cilantro

Steps

  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend to desired consistency.
