    OK, I thought I was a hummus-addict but you win! Great recipe. I am going to have to try this. 🙂

    You can be absolutely sure that I will be making this asap! What a creative recipe 🙂 I love berbere too! I bought some, and then gave it to my sis in law who was visiting from Spain, so no I’m going to have to buy some more just for this!

    Don’t recall you sharing this with me. However, that’s no surprise as hummus tends to have an incredibly small half-life in your house.

    And don’t think I didn’t notice the alliteration at the end. I’m on to your grammatical devices. >:-)

    I have never heard of berbere, but I do love hummus! Now I am going to be on the hunt for berbere, so I can make this. :o)

  5. amanda @ Hungry Vegan Traveler

    YES! I have all the ingredients for this!

    Must admit, I saw berbere at Kitchen King and almost picked itup because it’s associated in my mind with you, but then I realised that if it’s associated in my mind with you, then you clearly have enough access to it over there in KC! 🙂 I do hope to get your spices to you soon – just have a pretty full on week ahead, so can’t quite pick up the last few things I want for you yet 🙂

    You would adore Israeli cuisine! Of course, hummus is a staple (I was raised on it – oddly, I didn’t like it initially but then by around age 10 discovered the taste for it. It tastes so much better in Israel!) – but Moroccan spices are also frequently present in cuisine there. Because of the diaspora, there are people in Israel who are originally from the Middle East and North Africa as well as from Europe and Russia (I was surprised that many don’t know this) and it would be easy to put those together.

    Thanks for the share – I adore spicy of all kinds too.

    Moroccan – I meant Ethiopian – but Moroccan too and all over there…

    Super yum! I love berebere – but I’m currently out of it. I need to mix up another batch so I can try this!

    Hi Amber! I love your blog, this is my first comment for you. The hummus looks awesome, you can only have roasted red pepper or garlicky hummus so many times before it’s time for a change, and this is a combination I’ve never seen before! Like you, I am obsessed with cooking in international food styles. My obsession is Japanese food! Thanks for the exposure to a new style of cuisine with all your wonderful Ethiopian recipes!

    this looks delicious and the perfect consistency!

    Your hummus looks so VELVETY SMOOTH! 🙂 You didn’t peel your chickpeas, right? I’ve read somewhere online that the only way to get smooth creamy hummus is by peeling each and every chickpea before blending.

  14. Lori

    Um this looks/sounds FANTASTIC. I have to make this! I love love loooooooove hummus but have never mixed in those spices. Sounds great!

    Since my coconut curry hummus has only *thismuch* left, AND I have berbere spice in my cabinet AND I just bought chickpeas….HOLLA!!!

  16. Kate

    Just made this after its been on my to do list for a long time. OMG! AMAZING!!!

    Hey Amber! I made your Zucchini Hummus from Practically Raw and not only was it super yummy, I was SO happy to have a low calorie hummus recipe! I could eat hummus all day long but I do try to keep track of how many calories I eat in a day (otherwise I could easily go overboard!). I used it as a salad dressing and it was absolutely delicious! Thank you so much, I feel very grateful to have discovered you and your blog/cookbooks. You make eating healthy so easy and flavourful and you do it in such a friendly and nonjudgmental way…I think you’re absolutely wonderful!

    I know this post is old… I’m assuming you get notified about comments, though. I wanted to let you know about Penzey’s Spices, if you’re not already familiar with then. They sell Berbere. I have found their spices to be much more flavorful than the grocery stores. http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penzeys/p-penzeysperiperi.html?id=Cbqv5wjD
