I've been snacking on it with snap peas and naan as much as my little, dieting heart desires. :)
Here ya go!
our sun dried tomato hummus.
1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans -- drained
freshly squeezed juice from 1 lemon (approx. 1/3c of lemon juice...or to taste)
1/3 c of tahini
1/3c olive oil (may need more if it's too dry/thick after blending)
3-4 crushed cloves of garlic -- or more, shortly warmed on the stove (w/ olive oil) for extra potency this is the beginning point.
using a food processor, blend all ingredients & then, if lemon & garlic don't do it for you,
get creative with the flavors!
i always add:1tsp cayenne pepper -- give or take a little...usually give :)
lots of pepper
a little mrs. dash
1/2 can sun dried tomatoes or roasted red peppers (which adds a little moisture = less olive oil)sometimes a little more lemon juice
& maybe a little sugar (like...a TINY bit)
blend together to desired consistency --i like it a little gritty, but some do not.i usually let it cool in the refrigerator & eat it on warm naan, on triscuits, with baby carrots, or spread onto a veggie sandwich!
