    Leggy Peggy's Note:

    This recipe is from my dear friend, Elias, and his family. They are from the Middle East and this recipe is a staple for them. It has just the right balance of flavours.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 18

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Drain and rinse garbanzos. Do NOT use can juices for the liquid in this recipe. They 'muddy' the flavour of the end result.
    2. 2
      Put garlic, tahini and salt in a blender or food processor and buzz until ingredients are well mixed (10-15 seconds).
    3. 3
      Add garbanzo beans (one can at a time) and blend after each addition. You can reserve a few whole beans for garnish.
    4. 4
      Add lemon juice and blend.
    5. 5
      Add as much water as you need for the consistency you like. I usually use it all, unless the lemon is ultra juicy.
    6. 6
      Spread hummus on a flat plate. Create a bowl shape by elevating the edges with hummus.
    7. 7
      Drizzle olive oil over the hummus, sprinkle with paprika and garnish with reserved whole beans and chopped parsley.
    8. 8
      Serve with flat Arabic bread. It's nice to toast the bread lightly in the oven.

      Originally made as written for ZWT6 Family Picks because I multi-task & needed hummus for Mediterranean Dip Duo. BUT the hummus purist in me found she liked it so well that she expanded that recipe to include your hummus, the blended w/sour cream hummus + the Mediterranean-style salsa. All were served to family dinner party guests w/homemade garlic pita chips as cocktail hr finger food & enjoyed by all while we awaited the main-course grill effort. The presentation is esp pretty & won admiring comments from our family for the obvious care taken. Thx for sharing your tasty recipe w/us. :-)

      Excellent recipe!! Being a garlic lover, I used 3 cloves. And, used 3 heaping tablespoons of tahini and the juice of a large, juicy lemon (tip: place the whole lemon on the counter; push down with the palm of your hand an roll back and forth a couple of times before cutting and squeezing.) I can make a meal of this by spreading on a pita half with some diced tomatoes and sliced black olives, and then rolling it up. Love the addition of chopped parsley, along with the sprinlkle of paprika...adds a great color contrast for a nice presentation
