Spicy roasted garlic hummus recipe :
* Best overall
"Hey Moti! I really liked your recipe. Here is my hummus recipe. It's slightly different from yours, but people go nuts for it. I usually serve it with toasted whole wheat pita, fresh vegetable crudite, or hearty rye crackers. Enjoy!"
|To roast the garlic, take one whole head and slice the top 1/4th of it off, just to expose a bit of the meat. Place it in a pouch of tin foil & drizzle it with olive oil. Close up the pouch and roast it in a 375ºF oven for about 45 minutes. In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, chilis, tahini and cumin. Stream in olive oil until you get the consistency that you like. At this point, be sure to stop and taste the hummus to see if it needs more spices. Add salt and purée one last time. Empty the contents into a large bowl & stir in the chopped parsley with a spoon. Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of sesame seeds, and a little bit of parsley. |

"The Secret to this recipe is quality pita. Do not use Aladdin pita bread. The best bread I have ever had is from the Sahara Restaraunt in Brooklyn, NY"

| Dump 1 can of garbanzo beans including liquid into blender. Add the other can of beans, reserving the liquid. Add the garlic and lemon juice. Add tahini add toasted sesame seeds and a flick of the red pepper flakes, and blend. If it looks too thick, add some of the saved liquid from the can of garbanzo beans. After it's blended, sprinkle with more pepper flakes. Serve on a salad made of lettuce, pickle, pepperochini, roasted red peppers in oil, olives and roddichio with pita bread on the side. |

Dear Moti, You are adorable, and I loved your video. You remind me of my
dad, who knew the importance of good food shared with family, and was so
loving. His background was Russian Jewish, and you resemble him. Thanks
for the delicious recipe.

Great recipes ! I have made a lot of hummus in my time and I have to say
that Sesame King tahini paste makes the best hummus . It is all natural and
made in the USA. You should see it in your local market or buy direct from
www.sunshinefood.com or amazon.com
