    chef FIFI's Note:

    Forget those tubs in the supermarket, they never taste like the real thing. I always use Ziyad brand products for a more authentic middle eastern taste.The addition of the "tetbeleh" is how it is mainly made in the Jordan. In the mid east people enjoy this as a breakfast side, typically someone makes a run to the nearby falafel restaurant and brings back falafel, hommus and foul(fave beans) and serve with a side of green olives, white cheese and tea using our pita bread as our spoons, and there you have a middle eastern breakfast. In the U.S. it is served as a side dish for the most part, but in the middle east it is more a breakfast dish.

      There's nothing better than homemade hummous. We usually buy our hummous by the kilo from a local Yemenite hummous shop, and I think this recipe will give them a run for their money. I didn't want to make my hummous dairy, so instead of yogurt I used some homemade mayonnaise. What really gives this some zing is the tetbeleh, although I did play around with that and used a whole garlic clove and also added a dash of za'atar and some sumac. Next time I'm going to add a little zest from the lemon as well, we like it lemony. We had this as an appetizer with some hot mushrooms (Mifgash Mushrooms) in the middle, swiping at it with pita. Thanks for the creamy experience.
