    Hummus With Tahini 

    You may wonder what is hummus? Hummus is a dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chick peas (garbonzo), blended with tahini (sesame oil), olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. Its often found in Middle Eastern kitchens all over the world. The best hummus has a smooth and creamy texture and is healthy and delicious. Cortas hummus has been a favorite brand of many generations. 

    How To Make Hummus

    Take 2 cloves of garlic and mash them in a mortar and pestle with a little bit of salt, a bowl will do fine if you do not have a mortar. After mashing the garlic into a paste, take one 30oz can of Cortas Hummus with Tahini and empty it into a bowl and add the garlic to it. Squeeze in one small lemon on top of that and mix well. Some people also like to add 2 tablespoons of tahini (ground sesame paste) along with the lemon and garlic. This step is not necessary, but it does add flavor and should be considered.


    After mixing everything together, spoon the hummus in a plate and spread it thin with an outer edge to it. Next pour extra virgin olive oil on top of and and serve it with warm pita bread. Fresh vegetables like radishes, green bell peppers and cucumbers go great on the side.
