Middle Eastern Hummus




  1. Drain and rinse the chick peas, then add water to cover and simmer until tender.
  2. Blend the salt, garlic, lemon juice, tahine, and olive oil in a food processor or blender.
  3. Add some chick peas and blend until smooth, then do the same with some more chickpeas. Keep doing that until they've all been added. If the mixture is too thick to puree properly, add some water or a bit more of the liquids listed above, depending on your flavor preferences.
  4. Serve drizzled with olive oil. You can also sprinkle it with cayenne pepper.

Normally it is eaten with pita bread, ripping off pieces of bread and dipping it into the hummus.
