    Kellen's mum's Note:

    Until about 2 years ago, I would never try anything new. I was a ham-and-cheese kind of girl. Then one day at Epcot, my sister persuaded me to try the food in the Morocco pavilion. I was feeling adventerous so I got the sampler platter consisting of a gyro-like sandwich, some falafel, hummus, tabouleh, and citrus lentil salad. Well, I had certainly been missing out! Everything was delicious, uh, except the lentils. Now, I am addicted. I snack on veggies dipped in hummus, warm pita dipped in hummus, and I even use hummus in place of mayo on wraps and sandwiches. This hummus recipe is very basic but you can easily tweak it to suit your taste.

      Yum!!! This hummus is delicious with the suggested chopped cucumber. I loved it just with a soft tortillas and for a veggie dip. Made for my adopted chef for Spring 2012 PAC. Thanks so much Kellen's mum! :)
