"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." — basilshadid

Thank you Basil! Finally, a hummus recipe that tastes as good as my Middle-Eastern friends serve! And, it's so easy to make!
yikes, really lemony and "tahiniy"
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
I reduced the lemon juice slightly, but, other than that made exactly as the recipe stated. It was a perfect texture and had good flavor. I served with homeade bagel chips.
Reminds me of the wonderful Mediterranean food from home in New England.
So good! I used Sesame Oil at about 1/2 mix with Olive Oil, since, that's all I had left (under-estimated my olive oil :-D )and I also added pepper to taste and topped it with fresh parsley from the garden. MAJICAL.
