My Delicious Secret Natural Hummus Recipe
I made a secret hummus recipe and am sharing it. while living in Israel I learned much about middle eastern foods and the spices that grow and are being used in that part of the world. It was not unusual to see people get out of a car and walk to an empty field to pick spices. As a youngster growing up in the USA I did not like hummus as it was sold from a can. only when I lived in Israel did I taste fresh made hummus of many varieties and learned how and why to eat it as a meal. I never imagined I would make a hummus recipe myself , and it would be so delicious that if I were selling hummus I would now be rich. Anyways, this recipe is in promotion of my book about life in Israel - " Leaving Home , Going Home , Returning Home : A Hebrew American's Sojourn in the Land of Israel".
