How do I serve hummus?


If you're going to serve hummus, you'll need something to dip into it. An easy fix is to take pitas (white or wheat) and cut them into dippable triangles. If you want to add even more flavor, drizzle some fresh minced garlic over the pitas and toast them in the oven for a few minutes before serving. Here's a simple Hummus recipe which is great for a first course, dip, or snack.

  • 1 cup cooked or canned chick peas

  • 4 tbsps light tahini (sesame paste), or peanut butter

  • juice of two lemons

  • 6 tbsps olive oil

  • 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed

  • Salt to taste

Put all ingredients in food processor or blender and blend until smooth. If mixture is too thick, add a little water or liquid from the chick peas. Let stand for 1 hour. Serve with warm pita bread.
