Hummus & Crepe Cookout


Late-afternoon chatting & cooking at the same time: 
Maj - Hummus dip with Poppa dums; Arky - Nutella Crepe
(Thanks, Maj, for these shots!) 

Simple Hummus Dip Recipe


  • 2 15-oz cans of chickpeas / garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2/3 cup of ready-made tahini 
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced & mashed
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Toasted Pine Nuts (optional)
  • Chopped Parsley (for garnish)

(To be honest, I find it easier to just estimate the measurements & taste-test when I'm making this. But for first timers, this could be helpful!) 


1. Combine garlic, chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, 1/2 cup water, & olive oil in a food processor until smooth. If you don't own a processor, you can mash these well together with a wooden / serving spoon.
2. Add salt, depending on the taste you prefer. I try to avoid this though. 
3. Prepare into a serving dish. Sprinkle chopped parsley (& toasted pine nuts if preferred).
4. Serve with raw carrots, cucumber, celery, (cut lengthwise / into sticks); Arabic bread; pita bread; or crackers. 

(You can also try: cutting thin Arabic bread into triangles; then brushing with a little olive oil & toasting.)

Thanks for reading! I'll post the yummy crepe recipe sometime soon! :)
