Hummus, a thick, well-seasoned garbanzo bean spread, has been enjoyed in eastern Mediterranean countries since ancient times. It makes a tasty and refreshing, do-ahead appetizer when spread on garden-fresh cucumber rounds.


Select ingredients:


  1. Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until tender. Remove from the heat. Stir in the parsley, basil, oregano, coriander, and cumin.
  2. Combine the garbanzo beans and lemon juice in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
  3. Add the bean mixture to the skillet. Stir until evenly combined. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let cool.
  4. To prepare the appetizer, spread about 1 tablespoon of the hummus on each cucumber slice. Garnish each with a piece of bell pepper or grape tomato.
