Hummus (from The Haggis and the Herring blog)

This is hummus – plain hummus – hummus according to the definition:  “a smooth thick mixture of mashed chickpeas, tahini, oil, lemon juice, and garlic”. And just like simple foods made of fresh, simple ingredients it is simply delicious. I like store-bought prepared hummus a lot – that stuff is good and tasty. But this stuff is so much better than that. Dip into it with freshly-toasted wedges of whole-wheat pita bread and you’ll see what I mean.
