SDT Week – Day 3: Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus
(Wow. We made it out without goat cheese this time! Although a sprinkle of that addictive white stuff would be great on this. :))
Remember my favorite orange plate that I made? Well, this cute little bowl is what my husband made on our double date to the pottery shop. Nice work, hon. :)
Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus
2 15-oz cans chickpeas/garbanzo beans + 1/2 cup reserved bean liquid
2 T tahini sesame seed paste
Juice from 1 lemon
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup Homemade Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto (or plain oil-pack sun-dried tomatoes)
a generous pinch of salt and black pepper (to taste)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Put all ingredients (except olive oil) in the mixing bowl of a food processor. Begin processing and drizzle olive oil in as it blends. Continue to process until smooth and no chunks of anything remain. Transfer to a small bowl and serve with vegetables or pita wedges.
Makes about 3-4 cups of hummus.
