Greek hummus, a dip that dates back to ancient Greece, is very similar to other Near Eastern versions, such as Lebanese or Turkish hummus, some of which can be a bit spicier.
Purée the chick peas, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, coriander, cumin, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/3 cup cold water in a food processor until smooth. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving. Season to taste with more lemon juice and salt just before serving. Serve cool or at room temperature accompanied by fresh pita wedges or toasted pita chips.
Make Ahead Tips
The hummus can be made a day ahead.
