The ginger, cumin, and cilantro in this recipe are anti-inflammatory, and the chickpeas are full of fiber. Toasted whole-grain pita is great for scooping up hummus.

15 (1 can) ounces chickpeas drained, reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid

1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 teaspoon ground star anise (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 cup cilantro leaves finely chopped, plus whole leaves for garnish (optional)
1 plum tomato peeled, seeded, and very finely chopped
2 scallions very thinly sliced
Coarse salt and ground pepper


In a food processor combine beans and reserved bean liquid, tahini, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, star anise (if using), ginger, and cumin; puree until smooth.
