MAY: Hummus

This tasty dip can be mild or spicy depending on the amount of garlic and cayenne you use. Since all the ingredients are blended at once, you can start with fewer garlic cloves and less cayenne and black pepper, stopping to taste and add as desired.

The following quantities will serve 30-50 people, depending on how many other items are being served.

Ingredients:

3 cans chick peas, save the liquid
6 large cloves of garlic
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp Tamari
Juice of 6 – 8 lemons
2 1/4 cups tahini (sesame paste)
1/2 bunch parsley
1/2 Tbsp black pepper
1/2 bunch scallions (optional)
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1/8 tsp cayenne or to taste

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Serve with pita bread, cut into triangles and/or crudite.
