A great variation on the beloved hummus. Must have with the pita chips as the flavors were born to mingle. The pita chips cooked in my oven in 10 minutes, so you might want to periodically check that yours aren't burning. I added cilantro because... well, because I love it! Why else would I? ;o) Shamelessly stolen from The Soyfoods Council.

Really tasty- we love it. We used a tad bit more garlic than called for and did not use cilantro, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. All the spices in it are fantastic together. Pita chips were great as well, and so easy to make. Thanks for posting, would make it again.
