Looking for a GREAT hummus recipe

I was wondering if anyone has a great hummus recipe that they can recommend. I would love to have one but feel overwhelmed looking on allrecipes. I will probably use one there if no one does have one but thought I would rather check here first.

I love Hummus. Hope this helps-- It's a personal favorite!

Hummus with Pine Nuts


· 2 cups chickpeas, drained and rinsed, or soaked if using dried
· 3 tablespoons of tahini
· ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
· 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
· ¾ cup pine nuts, lightly toasted and finely chopped.
· ¼ teaspoon cumin
· 1 clove of garlic, crushed
· 1 teaspoon salt
· 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt
· 1 teaspoon parsley or cilantro, finely chopped (plus more for garnishment)
· 2 tablespoons water

In a blender or food processor, blend the chickpeas. Add tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and water until the ingredients form a paste-like consistency. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and add remaining ingredients, mixing well. Garnish with any remaining parsley or cilantro, cover and refrigerate about an hour.
