  • 1
    In food processor or blender, place beans, reserved bean liquid, tahini, 1/4 cup oil, the lemon juice, garlic, table salt and pepper. Cover; blend on high speed, stopping blender occasionally to scrape down sides, until smooth. Spoon dip into serving dish. Sprinkle with parsley.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 375°F. Brush both sides of each pita bread with 1 tablespoon oil. Cut each pita bread into 8 wedges; separate wedges to make 16 wedges for each pita bread. Places wedges, oil sides up, on ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • 3
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until pita chips are crisp and lightly browned. Serve with hummus.

Expert Tips

  • Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seed. One-half cup of sesame seed can be subbed for the tahini. The dip just won't be as smooth as if you'd used tahini.
  • Swirl the surface of the dip with the back of a spoon, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cayenne for an inviting appetizer.
  • Add a signature touch—stir in 1/4 cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes for a punch of flavor and color.

For a smoother consistency I read "Take the chickpeas out of the can and boil them, until they loose their transparent skin. These will float on the boiling water, so you can take them out with a slotted spoon."

Tasty but way too much tahini! I had to add extra garlic, and lemon juice to cut the tahini flavor. Next time I will probably use like half the tahini. It turned out a little chunky because I used a blender, so if you like your hummus smooth probably a food processor would be better.

Absolutely delicious. Couldn't have found a better recipe. My first try was in a blender. It seized. Then I tried the food processor and it was fine. However, I would have liked it to be smoother so today I will attempt to check the liquid. I like it with green olives or red pepper.
