...hmmm, did you know hummus is the Arabic word for chickpea? 

Another truth is that there is no single hummus recipe and the ingrediants are based on your tastebuds. 

Since I didn't want this dip to detract from the main event, I created a mild hummus based on the following:
  • Using a food processor, combine half the chickpeas with half of the softened yams
  • Add lemon juice and olive oil to thin it out
  • Add spices sparingly
  • Taste test
  • Repeat until you have the desired volume, flavor and texture
  • Puree further - optional (I wanted mine smooth)
