I came across a site with South Beach recipes and information.
I don't know if it's been mentioned before but I haven't known of
it before now. I hope it's not against the rules to post the name of
the website. Can someone let me know if I can post it?

Go right ahead. If it's illegal, the censor will **** it.

Wow, there is a recipe there for Cheese Garbanzo Bean Bread ( that sounds really interesting - I am going to try a version with hummus instead of the pureed garbanzo beans/tahini/oil in the recipe... the only hummus bread recipes I have found so far are variations of one from King Arthur flour and are mostly white flour, so mine will really be an experiment (yay, I love experiments!)

Thanks for the recipes. Great collection.

Emma, let us know how that bread goes and what amount of hummus you add.

OK, the recipe I tried was a total bust. I just subbed 1 cup hummus for the 1 cup of chickpea puree/olive oil/tahini/salt otherwise called for. BUT I also used 4 oz cream cheese instead of 2 oz cream cheese + 2 oz mozzarella, 'cause it seemed weird to me to have mozzarella in there, so I can't vouch for how the recipe would be as written.

It was total weirdness, like a soft polenta/tofu scramble consistency. Even slicing the mass and toasting did not improve the texture. So MAYBE the mozzarella would have made all the difference but honestly I doubt it.

The good news is that the flavor was AMAZING. I will try something similar but a Phase 2 version with some whole wheat or other flour in there - combining this recipe with ratios of the King Arthur Flour Hummus Bread recipe (, eliminating the white flour. But also I am hoping to reduce the amount of flour. Maybe chickpea flour would be a good substitution... and I suppose then it would still be Phase 1? Something to think about.

If anyone sees this and has any ideas, send them on! I love the idea of hummus bread.

What a good fine. Thanks for sharing. I don't claim to be a cook let alone a good cook so need all the help I can find.
