Hummus

I have not tried this recipe, but will soon. At our house, we love to have an assortment of Hummus as a dip. This is a great alternative to always eating cream (sour or whipped) based dips because they are high in calorie and don't sustain you all that much. So I am anxious to try it. And when you buy hummus at the market, it is expensive. Let me know if you try it too. ~Shelly

Ingredients:
1 can [15 to 16 ounces] garbanzo beans, drained and liquid reserved
1/2 cup sesame seed
1 clove garlic, cut in half
3 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp salt
chopped fresh parsleypita bread wedges, crackers or raw vegetables, if desired

Instructions— Place reserved bean liquid, the sesame seed and garlic in blender or food processor. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth.— Add beans, lemon juice and salt. Cover and blend on high speed, stopping blender occasionally to scrape sides if necessary, until uniform consistency.— Spoon into serving dish. Garnish with parsley. Serve with pita bread wedges.

Woo Hoo! I was just at the store with Sydney not 30min ago and I wanted to buy Hummus but it was so dang expensive! I used to be married to an Middle Eastern man and had a recipe and was trying to remember where is would be... Now Who Cares I got one! Thanks
