I'm going on vacation for a couple of days but wanted to leave you with a delicious dip that we eat quite often in my house.

Hummus is becoming ever so popular.  It's great as a dip with pita bread, bagel chips, cut veggies, or crackers.  It's also a great spread for a sandwich, wrap, or pita pocket.  Try using it in various ways to liven up everyday dishes!  I served served this one as a traditional hummus dip, grilling some pita bread and cutting them into wedges for dipping.  

Enjoy!  I'll be back with a great chicken dish at the end of the week.


1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/3 cup Tahini
2 T fresh lemon juice
2 T chopped fresh parsley
2 garlic cloves
½ t salt
2 to 4 T water, as needed
Paprika, chopped tomatoes, olive oil (optional garnish)
Warmed or grilled pita bread cut into wedges

Place the chickpeas, Tahini, lemon juice, parsley, garlic and salt in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Add water as needed to reach desired consistency.  

If desired make a well in the center of the hummus and add a drizzle of olive oil.  Sprinkle with paprika and chopped tomatoes.  Serve with grilled or warmed pita wedges.


  1. is it weird that I' ve never tried hummus? but it still looks pretty good
