Friday recipe: hummus

April 23, 2010 —

Hummus is my favorite dip to go with fresh veggies or to spread on sandwiches in place of mayo. There are lots of flavors (roasted-red pepper, garlic, cracked pepper) at the grocery store, but it’s actually really easy to make! All you need is a food processor or blender to mix the ingredients. Check out this recipe from DMU’s very own Marco Torres, kitchen lead in Summerfield’s Cafe on campus!

Marco’s hummus (halved for a family-size portion)

4 cups garbanzo beans, drained
4 oz. tahini (ground sesame seeds, typically sold in jars in Asian food sections or stores)
1 tsp. lemon juice
3.5 oz. chipotle peppers
1 sprinkle of salt
1 sprinkle of pepper

Blend all ingredients in a food processor.
