We always have a picnic on Easter, and we never ever pack sandwiches for picnics--it's an unspoken rule.

I've developed a sesame allergy, and I meant to try an edamame-based recipe for a hummus-like spread but forgot to buy edamame.

So we thought we'd try to make hummus without tahini. DH is so brilliant. He did it. Instead of tahini, he used creamy Sunbutter! It worked beautifully. So if you're one of the PA families who avoids all seeds, you can try this, too. There was only a little hint of Sunbutter. It was virtually identical--and after a few sips of champagne, no difference at all! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Edited to add actual recipe (kind of):
Well, this is the traditional hummus recipe with Sunbutter subsituted for tahini (but I'm not sure that this is exactly what DH followed--for example, this recipe calls for dried chickpeas, and we used canned--and probably a whole can, not 1/4 c):

Yes, I added a bit of soy butter once as well. It was more about texture than flavor. But I have also made hummus with just the chickpeas, garlic, lemon, olive oil, salt and water, if needed(for the right consitency). becca

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.
Makes 4 servings, each 115 calories, 4.1 grams fat, 8.2 grams protein, 10.4 grams carbs and 4.2 grams fiber

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

I have found one from the our paper, the 2/19/06 edition of The Houston Chronicle.

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.
