Do you have a recipe for Israeli-style hummus?

I'm so done with the packaged kind! TIA!

  1. I don't know if you can call this Israeli-style but all the folks I know who have spent any time is Israel really like it. It is the brightness from the fresh lemon juice, I think.

    1 can chick-peas, keep second can in reserve
    1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
    2-3 cloves garlic
    4 tablespoon tahini paste
    olive oil

    crush garlic and process with chick-peas, lemon juice, tahini in food processor. Add salt and blend again to taste. Adjust thickness with water or more chick-peas. Spoon into serving bowl. Drizzle oil over, sprinkle with chopped parsley, paprika and scatter a few chick-peas over all.

        Thanks--will try both of these!

      2. In Tel Aviv I was served hummus with a pita that was split down the middle toasted and served warm. Made a big difference enhancing the flavor.
