Ingredients

This hummus is great to keep on hand for a snack with raw veggies or is a great addition to top off hamburgers or sandwiches. You can also enjoy it on its own in a whole-wheat pita or bagel with tomatoes and cucumber slices.

Yield: about 1 ½ cups (375 mL)

  • 1 can (19 oz/540 mL) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) tahini
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) water
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
 

Preparation

In a food processor, pulse together chickpeas, peppers, tahini, cumin and salt. With the food processor running, add oil and water until very smooth, scraping down sides a few times. (Allowing the food processor to run for a few minutes helps produce a very smooth hummus).

Pulse in lemon juice and garlic.

Sundried Tomato Version: Omit roasted red peppers. Use 1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped sundried tomatoes that have been rehydrated in hot water and drained.

Storage: Keep in airtight container, refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Recipe Tip

RECIPE TIP

Tahini is a toasted sesame seed paste that you can find in most grocery stores in the international aisle. You can also find it in health and bulk food stores. It adds a great nutty flavour to the hummus.

If you cook your own chickpeas, you will need 2 cups (500 mL) for this recipe.

DID YOU KNOW?

Bone is a living tissue, that is constantly renewing and repairing itself from everyday wear and tear.  However, like many nutrients, calcium is absorbed less effectively as we age.  Try out our calcium calculator to see if you are getting enough in your daily diet.
