Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus (Chummus)
April 04, 2008

Finally! I went to Israel on a tour in 2006 and ate hummus every chance I had. Since then I have not found a recipe or store brand that I thought was close to authentic. This is fabulous. It is so creamy and mild, and my husband is glad that I don't smell like garlic! The cumin gives it a good flavor and I added just a dash of cayenne to give a little kick. Cooking the dry beans instead of using canned also makes this a much fresher tasting dish. Thanks. Now if I could only find some fresh pita bread!
