Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    While we really like the flavors on this, it needed a bit of tweaking. As written (and this might be b/c it's converted from a larger quantity restaurant recipe), the hummus is just too, too thick. It didn't even really puree, it was sort of a very coarse chunky mash. I upped the quantity of lemon juice and olive oil (just adding until it came together more and tasted right), which seemed to do the trick. Served with the Eggplant puree, flatbreads and za'atar lebni from the same book.
