Hummus has quickly become America’s favorite game-time dip. In fact, last year it was the Super Bowl’s official dip. Why not? It’s creamy and smooth and has a really great garlicky flavor. Stir in some hot sauce or Cajun seasoning to kick it up. Ingredients
Step 1: In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the chickpeas and boil for 20 minutes. Once the chickpeas easily mush in your hand, they’re ready for hummus! In a food processor or in a blender on high speed, mix the chickpeas (still hot), the ¼ cup (60 ml) oil, the tahini, garlic, salt and lemon juice. Add a few drops of water at a time to help it all blend. Process or blend until creamy and smooth, which may take as long as 4 minutes. Put the hummus on a plate and if you want, drizzle with the 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of olive oil and sprinkle with paprika. Eat with your favorite crackers, bread or fingers.
