Red Pepper Hummus…because it’s freaking amazing! July 22, 2009

Filed under: Anecdotal — Addicted to Yarn @ 9:49 am
1 can cooked chickpeas
1/8 C tahini (sesame paste)
1 T lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, mined (1 ½ tsp.)
7-oz. jar roasted red peppers, well drained
4 sprigs fresh basil (or a generous shake of dried basil)
1 ½ t dried Italian herbs
1/4 C tomato paste
1 t paprika
generous splash or two of balsamic vinegar
1 t salt
¼ t hot sauce (optional)
1/8 – 1/4 C extra-virgin olive oil

Place the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, roasted peppers, basil, Italian herbs, tomato paste, paprika, vinegar, salt, hot sauce, and olive oil in the bowl of a food processor bowl fitted with a metal blade, and puree until smooth. ( I actually put all the ingredients in my blender and it turns out fine.)

This dip can be stored for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
