Sun dried tomato hummus
To make perfectly smooth hummus, you need to remove the chickpea hulls. You can do so by boiling the chickpeas 3 minutes in water with 1/2 t baking soda. Pour off the water then add cold water over the top. Rub the chickpeas vigorously and skim the released hulls off the top. You can also make perfectly yummy hummus without removing the hulls, but the texture will be a bit coarser.
- 1/2 can 5 oz chickpeas (cooked or from a can)
- 1 T tahini
- 2 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 small garlic clove
- salt to taste
- 1 T olive oil
- optional: 1/4 t sumac
Add all ingredients to small food processor. Process until smooth.
