(Humus)

Hummus

2 tbsp sunflower oil

Heat the sunflower oil in a small skillet and add the red pepper. When the oil starts bubbling, turn the heat off and pour over the hummus. Sprinkle pine nuts all over.

Serve hummus as an appetizer with small, toasted pide slices.

* To peel the chickpeas; Soak them in hot water for about 5-10 minutes. Then gently rub them with the palm of your hands while they are still in the water.
