    Robyn's Cookin''s Note:

    I'm addicted to this dish at a local pita chain and had to re-create it at home. The flavor combinations are out of this world; every bit is sheer heaven, I'm not even kidding! My taste buds have never experienced such excitement. This is a vegetarian recipe that will please non-vegetarians (my husband and I are both meat eaters). Pita Jungle uses bulgur in their tabouli (which is traditional) but I use quinoa in mine, to boost the protein a little, and I can't tell the difference in flavor. Prep time includes the recommended 24-hour "marinate" time for the tabouli. The hummus recipe is a variation of my Hummus.

      Delicious! Made both the tabouli and the hummus, but served them separately. The only change I made was to use lemon juice in the hummus and I used much less jalapeno as I felt it would be too spicy along with the cayenne. Sooo good with sea salt pita chips and blue corn tortilla chips. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup, January, 2014.

      Outstanding. Almost better than PJ but added a bit more cumin and aka my Lebanese friend boiled drained garbanzo beans for 10 minutes (after rinsing), then used that liquid to thin.

      My review is only for the hummus. I, too, am a PJ addict, and LOVE this hummus. This recipe is fantastic! I always wondered why my hummus wasn't creamy like PJ. Now I know - it needs tahini paste! I made my own in the coffee grinder (just sesame seeds and olive oil, and you can make only what you need - no waste!) Also, adding back in some of the bean juice gave it a great texture as well. I recommend starting small with the jalapeno and cilantro, and adding more to taste. GREAT recipe, thanks!!
