Like tehina, hummus was brought to Israel by Jews from Arab countries, though today it is everyone's favorite. It tastes best when eaten with fresh, warm pita bread.
- 2 cups canned chick-peas, drained juice of 2 lemons
- 1 tsp salt
- ¼ tsp cumin
- 3 tbsp pure tahini paste or 1 cup tehina
- 2 garlic cloves, mashed
- 2 – 3 tbsp oil
- parsley (for garnish)
- Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender, mix until chick-peas are smooth.
- Refrigerate hummus in a covered container.
- Serve well-chilled, with chopped parsley on top.
- If desired, reserve ¼ cup unmashed chick-peas and sprinkle on top.
- More garlic may be added, if desired.
- If pita is not available, crackers or thick slices of French or Italian bread may be used.
