Hummus is a delicious dip from the Middle East. A bit of hemp oil makes it even more nutritious and delicious.
|Yield||about 2 cups|
|Time||10 minutes (+ chick pea soaking and cooking)|
|Directions|| Place the cooked chick peas (it’s ok if they’re still warm) in the food processor along with the garlic, lemon juice, and 2 T hemp oil. Process for about a minute, until smooth. If too thick, add more liquid.
Stir in the tahini, taste, and add more lemon juice/tahini/garlic as appropriate.
Spread the hummus into a shallow bowl, drizzle with hemp oil, and garnish with lemon slices and minced parsley.
Serve chilled, with warm pita bread and/or fresh vegetables.
|Notes||Hummus is eaten in many different countries, so there are a lot of variations, especially in spices. Experiment to find what you like best.
