hummus-12 recipe

 An adaptation of the Hummus recipe from Mollie Katzen's "Moosewood
 Cookbook". My comments are in square brackets.
 2 to 3 medium cloves garlic, sliced [I use more, but I love garlic!]
 a large handful parsley
 2 healthy scallions, in 1-inch pieces
 3 cups cooked chick-peas [she uses 2 15.5 oz cans, I soak and cook dried]
 Few drops of sesame oil
 6 Tbs. fresh lemon juice  [I use quite a lot more - one or two whole lemons,
 3/4 to 1 tsp. salt (to taste)
 cayenne and a little cumin, to taste [she says optional, but I don't!]
 1) Place garlic, parsley and scallions in a food processor or blender, and
 2) Add chick peas, drops of oil, lemon juice, and salt, and puree to a thick
 paste. [I grind the chick peas separately first, it makes life much easier].
 3) Season to taste with cayenne and cumin. Transfer to a tightly lidded
 container and chill.
 The green colour can be a bit disconcerting at first, and it does taste a bit
 different, using sesame oil instead of tahini. But it is still good, I feel.
