    For the Crispy Garlic Pita


    1. 1
      Place the garlic, chillies and cilantro in a food processor and whizz until finely chopped.
    2. 2
      Add the garbanzos and whizz until well blended.
    3. 3
      With the motor running, squeeze in the lime juice and drizzle in the olive oil to make a fairly coarse paste.
    4. 4
      Season well to taste and spoon into a serving bowl.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, mix together the olive oil, garlic and parsley and season.
    6. 6
      Heat one side of the pita breads under a hot broiler for about 1 minute until well browned.
    7. 7
      Turn over the bread, then use a knife to slash the softer surface 4-5 times without cutting through the bread.
    8. 8
      Brush with the herb and oil mixture and return to the broiler until bubbling and toasted (about 1 minute).
    9. 9
      When cool, break into pieces and serve with the hummus.

      This is a really nice, "green" alternative to traditional hummus. The cilantro and lime give it a distinct, almost southwest flavor. The garlic pitas are to die for, and really enhance the dish. I'll for sure use them when I make regular hummus, and I could see sprinkling them with a little sea salt and munching them as a snack as well. I used wheat pitas (my nod to healthy eating) and they turned out great.
