Hummus


My friend Susan gave this recipe to me a few years ago. It is delicious "as is" or can be made into a variety of flavors: sun-dried tomato, roasted red pepper, black bean, curried.
As a simple appetizer, I cut whole wheat tortillas or pita bread into triangles. A pizza cutter works nicely for this. Brush a little olive oil on top, sprinkle with seasonings and bake at 350 for about 6 minutes.

Hummus
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 large garlic clove
pinch of ground cumin
pinch of ground nutmeg
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp water
3 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 tsp salt
Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend smooth.
