    ErOnur's Note:

    Hummus is very popular in the middle-east and every cook has a recipe. This was given to me in Lebanon. The creamy texture is important (should be very very smooth). Can be used as a dip, spread, garnish or a sandwich fill-in. I serve it as a salad in its own right. Enjoy!!

      This was really good even how I changed it. I loved the sumac on top. I could not find split chickpeas so I used canned hummus (chickpeas & a little tahini) I just added less tahini and used less garlic per our preferences. Instead of hot pepper flakes I used a dash cayenne. I would make this again both the way I did and if I can find split chickpeas I will make it from scratch insha Allah. Made for PAC Spring 2010.

      I had great success with this recipe. It would be helpful if the size of the "package" were specified. I buy dried chickpeas in 500g packs and found that I needed only half of it for this recipe. The same goes for the spices - this makes quite a large batch and too much seasoning would be such a waste (I used a teaspoon/5ml of each). I don't have sumac, but the end result was as good as any hummus I've eaten (and I'm quite a hummus nut!) I added a little more lemon juice, though. I also substituted paprika for the pepper flakes, since my son will be eating it too. Apparently hummus can be frozen, which is great for a family of two. My blender didn't cope with the mixture and so I put it through a mechanical blender/chopper thing first. The blender then did the rest of the job beautifully.
