When my sister-out-law gave me a food processor for Christmas, I was thrilled. Not only can I make pesto much more efficiently, but this handy little appliance will be much quicker to clean that the giant blender I’d been using for the past few years! One point for increased kitchen efficiency!
The first thing I made was a batch of hummus, using canned garbanzos and an array of flavorful dried spices. It was so good, I decided to share it!
16 oz. garbanzo beans (1 can)
6-8 green olives
1/4 cup tahini
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried dill
1/2 tsp salt
1. Mix all ingredients in a food processor, holding 1/2 teaspoon of dill and some paprika aside.
2. Garnish with sprinkling of dill and paprika, and even a few extra olives if you desire.
3. Serve with pita, garlic bread, chips, or veggies for dipping!
