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
Cover chickpeas with water and soak overnight.
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.
Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
Put all of the hummus ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and puree.
Transfer to an oven-proof dish or casserole.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes and serve hot with pita bread. You can sprinkle red pepper flakes on the top. Enjoy!
