I love Hummus to.
My recipes are similar to yours.
One uses tamarind and Tahini. I am not big on Tahini so I use peanut butter instead. Also, cook a carrot and use it and some of the water instead of plain water it calls for.

A different one:
2 - 15oz. Cans garbanzo beans
1/2 cup water
1/4 c.+ 2Tbsps Tahini
3 1/2 Tbsps lemon juice
2 Tbsps olive oil
2 1/2 tsps chipotles
1-2 large garlic cloves
1 1/2 tsps cumin
1/3 cup cilantro

Chipotles are smoked jalapeño peppers. I usually get the ones in a can and they are in a abode sauce. You can get dried ones which need to be soaked in hot water.
I like eating it with pita bread. Sometimes take pita pockets and separate in half and brush lightly with Olive oil and toast in oven or barbecue.
If I do not want bread then I use veggies or Belgian endive leaves.

I got some blue corn with sesame chips yesterday and they went very well with the hummus also. I also had some yesterday in a pita pocket for lunch.

I am getting worried that I haven't heard from you about the tahini I mailed out.

I checked the tracking on the box containing your tahini and, accordng to USPS, it was delivered to you on Feb 7.

You did receive my gift, didn't you?

Well, no harm. As long as now I know you have the box, I can
stop checking the tracking. Enjoy.

i love celery, but never used it in humus before. interesting.
anyhow, I will offer that humus -- or any bean/pea dish will be waaaaay better with non-canned items. Cook some chickpeas next time. more time intensive, sure, but really worth it.
