Leora’s Homemade Hummus & Pita Chips*



  • 1 can chickpeas (drained)
  • 1-1.5 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • salt (to your taste)


  • 1 package whole wheat pita
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper


1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 and slice the pita. Brush both sides of the pita with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Place the pita in the oven for about 5-10 minutes or until they get golden brown.

2. While the pita bakes, place the chick peas, olive oil, lemon, tahini, garlic and salt in a food processor or blender and process to your desired consistency.
