hummus, ASG’s way.

i made hummus for C – his first batch. i know, i’m crazy to have waited so long -14.5 months. not sure how i overlooked feeding it to him. it’s near criminal!

at the suggestion of friend ASG, i subbed sesame oil for tahini. keeping sesame oil in the pantry works better for me than having tahini around. and, i always hated fighting with that tahini can – stirring the oil and sesame paste together was inevitably a mess.

1 clove garlic + 1 can chickpeas (drained & rinsed) + the juice of 1 lemon + 1 TBS sesame oil + salt + olive oil to desired consistency. All in the food processor and let ‘er rip!

C ate it with a spoon. I put it on whole wheat pita sprayed with olive oil + lightly salted then baked in the toaster oven for a few minutes at 400 degrees. kalamatas on the side.

    i need to edit this recipe – i think i used too much sesame oil. so, maybe start with just 1 TBS and see how it goes from there.
    also, i just blended a jar of roasted red peppers into the remaining hummus – yum.
