Hummus is served as a meze (appetizer) with warm pita bread in Turkish restaurants. It is pretty simple, with just a few extra ingredients.


  • 2 cups dried chickpeas (equivalent amount of precooked chickpeas in can)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cups tahini
  • 3-4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt to taste


Step 1

Cover chickpeas with water and soak overnight.

Step 2

Drain chickpeas, cover with fresh water and bring to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 40 minutes or until chick peas are very soft. Drain.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

Step 4

Put all of the hummus ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and puree.

Step 5

Transfer to an oven-proof dish or casserole.

Step 6

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes and serve hot with pita bread. You can sprinkle red pepper flakes on the top. Enjoy!
