Having been to Israel numerous times and having tried hummus all over the country, I find this hummus recipe pretty close to what you would find there. To save time, I use canned garbanzo beans, but friends who use the same recipe tell me that the dried beans are the way to go.


  1. Blend garbanzo beans, tahini, garlic, salt and lemon juice in food processor until smooth and fluffy.
  2. Spoon onto small plate, flatten and add garnish per serving.
  3. Serve with warm pita bread, pickles and cherry peppers.

I think my review didn't go in! Easiest and tastiest hummus recipe I've found the net. Changed servings to 2.5 to quarter recipe for one can of chickpeas.
