Hummus, Baba ganoush, etc... Where to buy?

Does anyone know where in Lisboa one can buy containers of hummus, baba ganoush, tabouleh, stuffed grape leaves, etc?  Thanks!

I can't say I've seen baba ganoush, but I make hummus weekly because I love it. You can always go by Joshua's for the bg, tabouleh and grape leaves! Not great but still good. We went last year to the Royale Cafe at Lg. Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, n029 R/C Esq. Food was very good.

Sorry I don't know of any shops. Maybe someone else will answer who knows.

Thank you!  I will make my own hummus too, as soon as I invest in a food processor.  Where do you find tahini?

I've found tahini at local health food shops!

I meant to say too that making hummus can be done with the stick blender as long as you add enough lemon juice or you can get one of the small shoppers and do a pretty good job of it, too!

I'm a lover of all things chick pea - grão, garbanzo...I use them in many, many ways.

Thanks for the tip, as I was also planning to buy uma varinha mágica to make soups.

Happy creating! You have to post and share what you've done. I routinely make falafel...yum!

You're making me hungry!  When shall I be over?  I'll bring the wine...  :-)

I'm with you daffodil-11! I made a variation of falafel today, my own recipe - chick peas, onion, red pepper all smashed up well with a potato masher. I then added a few freshly cooked potato pieces as I'd made my husband a beef empadão. I mashed it all well again and seasoned with cilantro, curry spice, salt and pepper. It formed very well into patties, but I could have made them into falafel shape. Fried them gently in a little olive oil and they were fantastic. Served with a salad and plain yogurt.

Singher, those chick pea patties sound delicious, thanks for the idea!

This is great - another vegetarian here! I know this isn't about hummus, but has anyone here made lentil cakes? You season the same as you would falafel. I also use a potato smasher to make falafel. Great minds...
