We hosted playdate with purpose camp 2 weeks ago.One of fun thing we did at  the camp was to set up a table with assortment of snacks, each representing the  corner of the world.Kids had to taste the food, turn the globe and blind guess, where the food was from.One of the hit snack on the table was ‘Hummus’ with pita chips.

Hummus is a Middle Eastern, Arabic dip made with chick peas.Tahini, which is a paste of sesame seeds is another essential ingredient of Hummus.I like its very smooth texture with tartness, that lemon juice adds to it.


My kids liked pita chips earlier but ever since the camp, they both have started liking the pita with Hummus .Yay for me ! All the more reason to make my own hummus.My friend Ethel makes best hummus.So she shared her hummus recipe with me.




  1. 1 (16 Oz) Garbanzo beans(chick peas)
  2. 1/4 cup Tahini
  3. Juice of 1-1/2 Lemon
  4. 2-3 Cloves Garlic
  5. 1/2 cup Olive oil
  6. Salt to taste


  1. In a small pan,add oil and cloves of garlic on low heat.Let the garlic get soft but not browned and infuses the olive oil,about 10-15 mins.
  2. In blender,add garbanzo beans,tahini,lemon juice and garlic cloves.
  3. Slowly add olive oil as blender is running,until you get smooth paste.
