    King Lu's Note:

    The Hummus in this recipe is a lot less lumpy and more flavourful than the store bought stuff.

    1. 1
      In a Blender (NOT a Food Processor).
    2. 2
      Add chick peas, garlic, lemon juice, salt, cayenne, cumin, and 1/2 quantity of chickpea water, blend.
    3. 3
      You will probably have to stir manually a couple of times (when the blender is off!).
    4. 4
      Add Tahini and blend again, when finished the Hummus should be able to just start to slide out of the blender on its own.
    5. 5
      If too thick add a little more chickpea water.
    6. 6
      Pour into a shallow bowl, drizzle with Olive Oil, and sprinkle parsley on top.
    7. 7
      Cut up Pita Bread into bite size pieces, serve with Hummus.

      Great flavors. I loved the cumin and the bit of a zing from the cayenne. I still got a few lumps from chickpeas that just would not be ground up, but I think that is just the design of my blender; it was still quite smooth and fluffy.

      This is the first time I've made hummus. Try putting into tuna for a tuna salad sandwish instead of mayonnaise. With it's high rate of calcium and good fibre, hummus is a excellent food choice.
