My son reacted exactly the same way to a tiny (almost a trace) of hummus. Basically, I gave him a carrot that had touched the hummus in my plate. Instant throwing up. The doctor declared him allergic to chickpeas.
That was the end of that.

My PN/TN allergic son also tested positive for chick peas and the allergist told us to make sure we avoided hummus!

I make my own leaving out the tahini for fear of cross-contamination:
1 can garbanzos (chick peas), save liquid
squirt of lemon juice
clove of garlic
a bit of cilantro - dry or fresh (use less if fresh)
red pepper to taste
black pepper to taste
add garbanzo liquid as needed
Mix it all in a food processor or blender. Takes no time at all, & my family loves it.

Bubba says Hummus is made from chickpeas. Tahini has seasame seeds. Bubba says be careful.

My PA son eats Athenos hummus all the time and does not react. He is not sesame allergic however and I know for a fact that it DOES contain sesame seed. I hope that you have your little girl tested for sesame.

chick peas are very close to peanuts in the legume family...many of same proteins.
I am allergic to green peas and peanuts...again very close in legume family.
Please no "peas" at all!
