Mimi, do you drain the chickpeas to make that? I always find mine is so dry without added water, but maybe I cooked my own chickpeas from dried ones. I forget. becca

Mmmm. This is fabulous! DH and DS just made this. I got the recipe from the Houston Chronicle, April 5. Will not be helpful if you're avoiding soy.
Edamame Spread (hummus like spread--very similar in taste)
Coarse salt and ground black pepper
2 cups frozen shelled edamame
3 large garlic cloves, peeled (DH used 1, and it was perfect--3 would be too much)
1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
Veggies, rice crackers or chips for serving
In a medium saucepan of boiling slated water, cook the edamame and garlic until edamame are tender about 5 minutes, drain. (I think DH used a little garlic salt instead of adding garlic here)
In a food processor, puree edamame, garlic, lemon zest, juce, oil, and 1/2 cup water until very smooth, about 2 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl. If needed, think by adding water one tablesppon at a time. Season w/ 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon peopper.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 day. Serve.

Becca,
I do drain the chickpeas first. I have found that the best way to get an optimal consistancy is to puree the heck out of it adding the olive oil while it is processing. Also, adding the little bit of light sour cream or yogurt help to give it a bit of a creamy texture too (after processing).
I have never made it with dried chickpeas so I'm not sure if it comes out differently.
Hope this helps.
Mimi

A friend sent me this, but I've not tried it. And she gave it to me with tahini as an ingredient, which we won't use, since I am allergic to sesame. But here's another spread that can be treated similarly to hummus.
Black Bean "Hummus"
INGREDIENTS
1 clove garlic
1 (15 ounce) can black beans; drain and reserve liquid
2 tablespoons lemon juice
[1 1/2 tablespoons tahini] contains sesame!!
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
10 Greek olives
DIRECTIONS
Mince garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Add black beans, 2 tablespoons reserved liquid, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, tahini (unless avoiding sesame!), 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper; process until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Add additional seasoning and liquid to taste. Garnish with paprika and Greek olives.

Bumping out of apparent popularity of hummus that's not really hummus. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Two recipes here do not use chickpeas, although I don't know if Favas are legumes.
I do know that fava is the latin word for bean.
"Ecco homo qui est fava"
If you're a fan of Mr. Bean, you'll recognize that from the theme song. "Behold the man who is a bean." [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Hannibal Lector likes fava beans with a nice chianti and someone's liver.

I have been hearing about hummus but not sure of what it is? something with crackers i assume but I am not brave enough to tell people I don't know what to do with it when they are talking about the kinds they have had. I usually am not in the conversation so I get away with just wondering.
If you wouldn't mind would you explain to me what Hummus is used for and differnt kinds. Thanks Claire

It's a bean dip made from chickpeas, tahini (though not in this thread), lemon juice, olive oil, and garlic. Parsley, paprika, sumakh, and other spices/herbs can also be added.
It's often served topped with olive oil, sprinkled paprika or sumakh, and dipped into with pita bread.
Tahini is roasted sesame butter.
I make mine with roasted garlic and plenty of parsley and cumin. I sprinkle on sumakh and eat it with tortilla chips.
