Hummus

Hummus by Frosted Flaker

This is a great snack for any time of year. I personally serve it with Kalamata olives and sometimes even diced cucumber and/or bell pepper. Keep in mind that after blending, fine-tuning the mixture with slightly more tahini and/or lemon juice is often needed (see step 3). As a footnote, tahini is what gives the hummus its creamy…

Turkish Red Pepper & Walnut Dip

Turkish Red Pepper & Walnut Dip by John Spottiswood

I've had this appetizer numerous times at my favorite nearby Turkish restaurant, New Kapadokia. I finally made it myself for a number of guests and it was a big hit. Slightly sweet, slightly spicy, and very flavorful. I served it with high quality hummus and babaganoush, and the red pepper dip was the most popular. Give it a try!

This is very quick to make and lasts for a week in the refrigerator. It's great alone with pita bread or use it in the Mediterranean Layered Spread recipe on this website! Recipe is adapted from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook

Hummus & Greek Salad

Hummus & Greek Salad by Padma Priya Manikam

I decided to go healthy one night and went Arabic and Greek! Some of you may be familiar with hummus which is made from chick peas and the latter is pretty simple using feta cheese and lots of other fresh produce. Both are to be eaten with kubus (pita bread). The Greek salad was inspired by a book titled Vegetarian by Love Food.

Garlic Hummus

Garlic Hummus by Amanda Natividad

Some recipes call for too much tahini. Others try too hard and call for red bell peppers or sun-dried tomatoes. I prefer to keep it simple: chickpeas and tahini, with lots of garlic and lemon juice. Oh, and a dash of olive oil to keep it creamy. Use it as a sandwich spread or dipping sauce.

Pita & Lavash Chips

Pita & Lavash Chips by Bob Vincent

These are quick and easy to make. They go well with Hummus as a snack or appetizer. Serve them along side Middle Eastern dishes to add some crunch to the meal. I used whole wheat from Trader Joe's but if you are able to make your own that would be even better. Using cooking spray to bind spices to the chips makes them low in…
