“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

Make this just like it directs! I thought it would be too lemony, based on reviews, but if anything, i could have added a touch more lemon! In all, a fine basic recipe. I sprinkled some paprika over the top, in addition to the final 1/4 cup of olive oil. Serve with flatbread--enjoy!
