Another nice hummus recipe that makes use of my garden's peppers by way of The Wichita Eagle who got it from the North American Olive Oil Association. This one is a little lighter on the lemon & tahini - adjust to your taste of course. Use a potato masher to crush the garbanzos if you do not have food processor or blender - did it that way myself for years & now I prefer a chunkier hummus to the ultra-smooth, go figure. Serve with baked pita bread or pita chips or stuff into tomatoes (big cherries piped with smooth spicy hummus are great heavy hors d'oeuvres).
- In a food processor, combine the garbanzos, tahini paste, garlic cloves, cumin, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Blend until a smooth paste forms. Reserve.
- In a bowl, mix the jalapenos, roasted red peppers and olive oil. Add salt to taste.
- To serve, place the pepper mix on top of the center of the hummus.
This is the first hummus I made successfully! Whoo Hoo! Very nice flavor with the red peppers and jalapeno (which I finally got chopped ;)) on top.
