I was afraid this might happen. I guess Trader Joe's is not every place. But it is a magnificent store, reasonable prices, interesting healthy foods. It started in California, I think, but now there are stores in many places.
It is so majorly cool that Spark People has a team devoted to LOVING Trader Joe's.
Where do you live?

Don't buy it! Make it! Chickpeas, lemon, tahini (look with peanut and almond butters), olive oil, garlic (or roasted garlic) a bit of parsley. One you buy the tahini you can make a whole pound of hummus for about $1.25. Make it organic for about 25-50 cents more.
A very tasty alternative is to add roasted eggplant and make a hummus/babaganoosh blend. TO DIE FOR.
I have found very few hummuses that I like over homemade.
You can get tahini in a Greek or Middle Eastern supermarket. Or you could just whir some sesame seeds in your magic bullet or spice grinder.
Mashed chick peas olive oil lemon juice salt garlic crushed sesame seeds.
I have actually removed olive oil and tahini sometimes to save calories.

In our grocery store, it is with the other dips and specialty salsas and stuff like that, kinda near the fancy cheese section :)
I read today about an edamame hummus that I NEED to find and try! I love edamame so a chickpea/edamame combination hummus sounds delicious! My favorite hummus right now would have to be the one that has roasted garlic and cumin on top....mmmmmm.

Tahini is in the isle with the peanut butter, if it's not labeled tahini it is ground seasame seeds.

I'd like to try making it but I can never find tahini. Any ideas??? TIA, Carrie
with the cheeses, or try making it. It is so easy to make. A can of chickpeas, or try black beans( my daughters favorite) some tahini, garlic, and then you can add anything,roasted peppers, cilantro,etc. You just buzz everything up in the food processor.
