TODAY on MHTV: I love learning new recipes and family traditions that center around food; today I have my friend Tal and her mom, who is from Israel, over to show me how to make a few Middle Eastern dishes. Hummus, is a simple chickpea dip blended with sesame paste, lemon juice and garlic—I like to serve it alongside falafel, a recipe that’s an easy and delicious vegetarian dish. The chickpeas are formed into patties, fried and stuffed into a pita with all the fixings, including tahini sauce. Tal’s mom shows me how to make her personal recipe for a simple Israeli salad—cucumbers, mint, and parsley are drizzled with lemon juice and olive oil.
