I'm fairly certain I've mentioned it on the blog before, but I have a mild addiction to hummus. Well if I'm being honest maybe it's a tad more than mild, but you get the gist. I'm obsessed with trying different flavors, with or without tahini, and slathering it on anything remotely appetizing. Like always, if I fall in love with a dish, I have to make my own. For the last 2 months roasted red pepper has been the flavor du jour, and then I stumbled onto some Sundried Tomato Hummus at a friend's house last week.... Let's just say it's so good I had it for breakfast. See what I mean? It's a problem y'all.
8 oil-packed sundried tomatoes
1 can garbanzo beans, drained & rinsed
1 small clove of garlic
2 TB tahini
Juice of 1 lemon
4 TB extra virgin olive oil
1/8 tsp sea salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste
pinch smoked paprika
1. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a food processor. Add the oil as you blend the ingredients until you get the consistency you desire. Keep in mind, you can always add a little water to thin out the hummus.
2. Now add salt, pepper & the smoked paprika. Stir until combined.
3. Top with a drizzle of evoo, a clove of garlic & sundried tomatoes on top. And serve with pita triangles, tortilla chips and/or veggies like sliced peppers, cucumber, carrots. Enjoy!
Super easy, right? Seriously, make this today. You'll thank me later. Unless of course, you eat so much that you gain a few pounds. In that case, I'm truly sorry. It's addictive I tell 'ya!
