Sunday Kitchen #66 Hummus and Pita Bread

Soak some chickpeas overnight.
Cook them.
Then blend them with some tahini, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil.

Put 2 teaspoons of yeast in 1/4 cup of warm water.
Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and let stand for 10 minutes.
Sift 2 1/2 cups of flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt into a warm bowl.
Form a well in the center.
Pour in yeast mixture and one cup of warm water.
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 to 15 minutes, until smooth and no longer sticky.
Oil a large boil.
Place dough in bowl and turn to coat with oil.
Cover with a damp cloth and put in a warm place free of drafts for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Dough should be doubled in bulk.
Knead for a few minutes then divide into balls.
Roll balls into circles on a lightly floured surface with floured rolling pin.
Sandwich the circles between floured cloths and let rise for about 20 minutes in a warm place.
Sprinkle cookie sheets with flour or oil.
Bake for 5 to 10 minutes at 475 degrees.
Hummus and pita bread.
Mmm, delicious.

I was looking for chick pea recipes when I chanced on your YouTube hummus and pita show. It is a fun little video, except for one thing. You pronounce the word hummus in such a way that it sounds like the name of the terrorist group, Hammas. Hummus should actually sound like hoo-moose.

It is no big deal, really, but I shudder when I think of all these English students who use your blog, now going around enjoying their hah-mus and thinking that the leaders of Gaza were named after this lowly dish. :)
