Subj: Quick & Easy Hummus
Okay, this is for everyone who loves hummus, but thinks that it is too complicated to
make in their own kitchen. It's not!! This one only takes 15 minutes!
1 tablespoon safflower oil (olive oil works fine too)
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley (or parsley flakes)
1 teaspoon basil
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
dash of ground cumin
1 - 15 ounce can of chick peas, drained and rinsed (1 1/2 cups)
3 tabelspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional)
In a small skillet, heat oil; saute onion and garlic until onion is softened. Add
seasonings. Stir just long enough to soften parsley.
In a food processor (or blender), combine chick peas and lemon juice; process until
smooth. Stir into onion and herb mixture; stir in sesame seeds. Spoon into serving
bowl. Garnish with anything, it tastes great!
Makes 1 1/2 cups
