"This is my mother's recipe for creamy hummus. She cooked every day the food she learned how to cook when she was growing up. She gave us a history lesson of our culture and our family every night at the dinner table."

Hi Basil, thank you very much for this wonderful recipe that reminded me to the taste of "Pita im Hummus" which I enjoyed so much during my Israel vaccation 25 years ago. Done quick and easy it will be on my favorite list! Best regards from Germany, Sabine

This is fantastic! I've made this recipe twice now in the past couple of weeks. My only alterations were that I used about half the amount of lemon juice called for, an extra garlic clove, and added a little cumin. I thought it was really good, plus I got rave reviews from husband and dinner guests!
