hummus-08 recipe

Date:    Tue, 31 May 94 11:46:33 CDT
 From:    Tyrrell Courtney (tyrrellc@admin.stedwards.edu)
 garbanzos (1 or 2 cans drained, or cook yourself)
 fat-free yogurt (optional) 1/4 to 1/2 cup 
 lemon juice (I don't use too much as I don't like it too tart)
    tablespoon or so?
 garlic (essential) two to four cloves minced or crushed
   I like a lot!
 cumin to taste 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon
 pinch of coriander
 4 to 6 drops of toasted sesame oil (optional, negligible fat, 
    adds flavor)  Must be TOASTED SESAME OIL (I found in Asian
    food section of HFS.Very strong flavor, a bottle should
    last for years)
 Mash garbanzos (I mash with a potato masher, then run in batches
 in blender, because I like my hummus smooth)  Mix in everything
 else, tasting as you go along.  Salt can be added, if you
 like.  I also add some red pepper on the top before serving.
 Chilling seems to mix the flavors.  Serve with pita wedges.
