Ready in 1 hour

Unlike more traditional hummus, this leaves the chickpeas essentially whole. The textrue and flavor are completely different from the Arabian version.


2 cups chickpeas; cooked or canned
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
6 cloves garlic; crushed
1 teaspoon salt; to taste
2 tablespoons scallions; finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro; finely chopped
1 tablespoon mint; finely chopped

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Thoroughly mix all ingredients except the mint. Refrigerate for one hour. Just before serving, garnish with mint.

Note: chives may be substituted for the cilantro and tsp of dried mint for the fresh mint.
