Home-made Hummus

I acquired this recipe from a friend I met recently at Kavod House. To our surprise, it turns out that we went to the same high school (she's two years older than I am). We were even in concert band together for a year. It's a small small world.

3 cups garbanzo beans/chickpeas
1/4 cup Olive Oil
Water (to consistency)
3 Garlic Cloves (use less if tahini has garlic)
1/2 cup tahini
4-5 Tbsp. lemon juice
Freshly ground pepper
1/4 Parsley (optional)
Tobasco or any other hot sauce (optional)

  1. Drain and rinse beans.
  2. Put chickpeas, tahini and garlic gloves in food processor. Pulse until coarse and scrape down sides.
  3. Slowly add olive oil/water until light and fluffy.
  4. Season with black papper, cumin, lemon juice, and tobasco.
  5. Add handful of parsley and pulse until blended.
  6. Serve with some paprika, za'atar (hyssop), and pita or carrots.
