Subj:  Quick & Easy Hummus
From:  DBedford

Okay, this is for everyone who loves hummus, but thinks that it is too complicated to
make in their own kitchen.  It's not!! This one only takes 15 minutes!

1 tablespoon safflower oil (olive oil works fine too)
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley (or parsley flakes)
1 teaspoon basil
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
dash of ground cumin
1 - 15 ounce can of chick peas, drained and rinsed (1 1/2 cups)
3 tabelspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional)

In a small skillet, heat oil; saute onion and garlic until onion is softened.  Add
seasonings.  Stir just long enough to soften parsley.

In a food processor (or blender), combine chick peas and lemon juice; process until
smooth.  Stir into onion and herb mixture; stir in sesame seeds.  Spoon into serving
bowl.  Garnish with anything, it tastes great!

Makes 1 1/2 cups
