Taste&Create IX: Hummus and Pita Chips

hummus & pita chips

With pita or raw veggies, in a fried egg sandwich on Turkish pide, or on a bagel…hummus if so good.  I know it’s ridiculously easy to make, but it’s something I never do myself.  You know, I make my own baba ghanoush, and opening up a can of chick peas is certainly less involved than roasting an eggplant, so what’s the excuse?  In Brooklyn, it was perhaps understandable because I was spoiled by having Sahadi’s and their amazing hummus practically around the corner (then I would skip up the block to Damascus Bakery for fresh pita!).  Now there’s no Sahadi’s, so there’s also no excuse.   

Min from The Bad Girl’s Kitchen is my partner in crime for this month’s edition of Taste&Create.  I’m making Middle Eastern food for dinner tonight, and I found a great, lemony hummus recipe on her site.  Made in the food processor, it’s done in under five.  Needing something to go with my/her hummus, I also made Min’s pita chips.  They were salty and crunchy and a perfect companion to my bowl of hummus.
