Healthy and yummy snack!
- -3 tablespoons well-stirred tahini (sesame seed paste)*
- -3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- -1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- -1 garlic clove, minced and mashed to a paste with 1 teaspoon salt
- -3 to 6 tablespoons water
- -1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, washed well, spun dry, and minced
- -1 pound broccoli, tough ends of stems discarded
In a food processor purée chick-peas, tahini, lemon juice, oil, and garlic paste and, if a smoother texture is desired, force through a fine sieve into a bowl. Whisk in enough water to reach a pourable but still thick consistency and stir in parsley and salt to taste.
Cut broccoli stems into spears about 5 inches long with flowerets 1 1/2 inches wide. On a steamer rack set over boiling water steam broccoli, covered, until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
Serve broccoli topped with hummus.

SUMMERSTAGE MUSICThe 8th Annual Cine Fest Petrobras Brasil: Os Paralmas Do Sucesso, Maria Gadu, & Life Is a Blow When: Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 7:00PM
Os Paralamas do Sucesso formed in Rio de Janeiro in the late 1970s, and are now considered one of the “Big Four” bands of Brazilian rock. They have always incorporated reggae and ska into their sound, and have over the years continued to expand their soundscapes with intricate horn arrangements and Latin rhythms. The lineup, unchanged since 1982, includes Herbert Vianna on guitar and lead vocals, Bi Ribeiro on bass, and João Barone on drums.
Brazilian guitarist, singer and songwriter Maria Gadu is an emerging sensation to watch. She began her career as a child and went out to garner attention with her stunning interpretation of “Ne me quitte pas” by Jacques Brel. She has been featured on several soundtracks and her self-titled debut release has already created an international buzz.
The closing night film of The 8th Annual Cine Fest Petrobras Brasil is the documentary OSCAR NIEMEYER – LIFE IS A BLOW . Is it possible to tell a story of a nation through its architecture? Life is a Blow takes its cue from its subject, renowned and influential architect Oscar Niemeyer-- the great icon of Brazil’s Modern Architecture movement-- highlighting the poetry of his forms as inspired by his country’s majestic geography and soul.
