Hummus

9 Oct

This is a favorite of mine, there is nothing I love more that a delicious fresh hummus with pita, vegetables, and some Mediterranean olives. This is a very classic recipe but it has a lot of room for invention and a little personal touch. Sometimes I’ll add some cilantro and jalepeno for a southwestern flair or some olives and red pepper for somewhat of a tapenade.

Heres what ya need:
Simple Roasted Garlic
2 lbs cooked chickpeas or garbanzo beans
parsley
tahini paste
juice of lemon+zest
cumin
red pepper flakes

extra virgin

salt+pepper

 


Heres what ya do:

1. If you are using canned beans make sure they are well rinsed.

2. Combine all ingredients minus extra virgin olive oil in a blender or food processor.

3. Blend until chunky then slowly drizzle in olive oil through the top until hummus is has a creamy consistency.

4. Place in serving bowl and sprinkle with paprika, cayenne pepper, and cumin. Garnish with pita.
