“One of the first dishes I learned to prepare after moving out of my parents' home, many years ago. I loved pita bread and this smooth bean paste was perfect on it. Of course in the twenty years since, hummus has become ubiquitous; in every grocery store. But this simple dish is how you make it for yourself. Try serving it with a drizzle of chili or basil oil.”
