Hummus with Turkish Pastrami
Hummus Ingredients:
1 can of chickpeas (540 ml), washed, peeled*
3 garlic cloves, mashed with salt

Mix all the ingredients using a food processor until it is smooth. Add the pine nuts in it, stir. Arrange the mixture into the ovenproof dish. Arrange pastirma pieces all over the hummus.

Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C) to warm up. Then set the oven to broil (grill). Place the dish on the top rack. Grill the pastrami about 2 minutes.

The hummus stays in the oven for only 2 minutes to grill the pastirma. This short period of time doesn't effect hummus:)
