HumusOften in this blog, my Lebanese heritage and influence comes through in my recipes. My Dad raised us with respect for world cuisine, with middle eastern cuisine being at the center. Tahini, main humus ingredient, was one of My Dad’s favorite!

In Colombia, tahini was the only name that stuck with my generation, at least. Simple. Great with kibbeh or falafel, simply the best accompaniment for a plain slice of pita bread.

Roots bind us together or sadly pull us apart sometimes. For as far back as I can remember pita bread and humus brought my family together for the longest time. Today, my kids are learning to give generously, to give hospitality to loved ones and to those in need. What a tremendous gift! This humus recipe is simple and yet it fulfills a vital mission in my family history today: To strengthen family ties.


Ingredients: 1 can of chickpeas, 2 TBSP tahini (sesame paste), 2 cloves of garlic, 1 TBSP olive oil, 2 TBSP lemon juice, salt to taste, parsley and 1/4 white or yellow onion (sliced.)

Blend above ingredients (except parsley and onion) in mixer. Serve and top with Julienne onions, some sprigs of parsley and 1 tsp of olive oil.
