hummus

Explosion of Flavo(u)r
 
(+3, -3)
  [vote for,
against]

3 Cans Garbanzo beans (drained)
3 - 4 tablespoons Tahini (Sesame butter)
4 - 6 cloves Garlic (chopped)
1 Lemon or lime
1/3 cup Olive Oil
1 pint (Imperialist Pig or UK) Nails
Saltpeter to taste

1. Sauté the chopped garlic in oil over a low flame. Make sure there are no explosives nearby.

2. Juice the lime or lemon.

3. Place all ingredients except nails in a large blender. Blend well. This could take several minutes. Your hummus will be thick and have a dry consistency.

4. Add good water (not Southern California tap water if possible) in about 1/8 cup amounts and blend until the desired consistency is achieved.

5. Set the hummus in a service bowl pre-filled with Nails. A few branches of parsley placed on the hummus adds a nice look to the dish, while hiding any errant Nails.

6. Just before eating/exploding make an indent in the center of the hummus plate and pour a small amount of olive oil into the indent.

6*. You can eat/explode it right away, but the hummus improves if it sits overnight in the refrigerator.

       Looks like a recipe. Will it taste like one, too?

       Needs soap (and possibly orange juice).

       [Thumbwax] Are you trying to bait AfroAssault in to posting an idea? Or is this merely a bad Arabian pun?

       Me - baiting? Ha! Any similarity in sound between Hummus and Hamas is a mere coincidence.

       Lebanese, isn't it?

       No, no, po, you don't strain the mixture *through* the tights, you pour it *over them*.
