Expert Tips

Hummus is a Middle Eastern spread made from mashed garbanzo beans (chick peas), garlic, lemon and often sesame oil. Serve our updated version like they do in Turkey. Make a depression in the middle of the bowl of hummus, and spoon in a tablespoon of olive oil.

If a food processor is not available, mash the chick peas with a fork. The mixture may be slightly lumpy, but the texture does not interfere with the flavor.
