Servings For :4-6 People Prep Time:20 Minutes
- 1-2 cans chickpeas
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 3 tablespoons tahini

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 to 5 small pita loaves

For the topping:-
I made 3 different versions, the plain one, topped with ground beef, and topped with chicken shawarma.
Add the chickpeas from the cans to a pot With the water inside, heat on medium heat for 5 minutes.
In your food processor add garlic and jalapeño, lemon juice, remove 1/2 the amount for the topping. Set aside 1 to 2 tablespoons of the chickpeas for garnish.
Add the chickpeas with out the chickpeas broth, to the mixture in food processor and mix for 2 minutes then add salt, cumin,olive oil, then tahini and yogurt. Add the broth slowly until you get a smooth mixture. Then sit aside.
Step Separate the pita loaves into two thin layers, then cut them into bite-sized pieces with kitchen scissors.
- Heat half the olive oil in a frying pan and shallow-fry the pita until crunchy and golden.
- you can add half of the pita bread to the toaster and toast it.
- you can brush the pita with some olive oil then toast them well in a hot oven, then break them into bite-sized pieces by hand.
Now you have 3 ways and you can pick what ever you like.
Spread the bread in an even layer in a deep serving platter or bowl. Ladle out about a cup or so of the reserved hot chickpea broth, and drizzle it on top of the bread pieces until they are just soaked, after you soak the bread add all the hummus mixture on top of the bread, give it a good mix if the mixture too thick adds more broth.
Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil and fry the pine nuts until golden, then pour them, along with the hot oil, over the chickpea-yogurt mixture. Sprinkle paprika, cayenne pepper. Then add some of the garlic jalapeño mixtures to the top.
