Hummus is a healthy and flavorful appetizer and snack. Cucumbers, carrots, bell peppers and snap peas are perfect dippers. If you want to take your hummus to another level, boil dried chickpeas and use instead of canned ones. The texture will be amazing. If you are short on time, canned chickpeas will do.
1. In a food processor, combine chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, and yogurt until smooth. Add water to thin if necessary.
2. Dump in garlic, parsley, lemon juice and zest, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt to taste, then combine until smooth.
3. Scoop hummus into a serving bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and top with a few dashes of paprika and chopped parsley if you wish.
4. Serve with pita bread or vegetables for dipping.
Warm chickpeas produce a smoother hummus.
