    Mirj's Note:

    Israel has a zillion versions of hummous, but this is one version I could only find in the States. This was developed over trial and error (and lots of searching for recipes) until I got it just right.

      Mirj--my mouth is watering! I'll be doing this tonite for pre dinner appetizers for son & daughter-in-law (she's Hungarian descent) but will use canned garbanzos cause I'm lazy.
