In honor of our last week in Israel, we (really it was Dafna but I squeezed the lemon juice) made our very own hummus. It was taim (delicious) on all counts. Very flavorful, the zatar on top added some zing, it was chunky AND creamy, thick but not too thick, and held up well in the sun. Everyone who tried it agreed, and one Israeli was included in that bunch. He liked it most of all and couldn't believe that we hadn't trained for years.
Our Secret Recipe = Tachini, chick peas, lemon juice, zatar, garlic, salt and olive oil.
We took the hummus with us to Gordon beach for a picnic.
Rachel is back in Palo Alto and Dafna is back in Hamden. Here we are getting excited to walk on American soil. But inside we were sad and homesick. We can't wait to return to the Land of Hummus!
