DIRECTION


Place first six ingredients on food processor. Mix until it forms a smooth paste. Add oil slowly while motor is running. Remove from processor and stir in parsley and mint. Sprinkle with either Summac or Paprika. Serve with pita bread.

Most super markets carry Tahini. Summac can be found in Middle Eastern markets. Paprika will work just as well if you do not have it.
