Quickie Hummus Bowl (sans Tahini)
Who don't I like tahini? I love sesame seeds, so it makes no sense.
I have tried many brands, including Trader Joe's and the famous one from Philadelphia.
I have to face the facts, that I just won't be friends w/ tahini.
I was craving hummus and posted a pic on instagram and facebook. I received many requests for a recipe, so here it is.
I ate this with a toasted pita and loved it.
1 can of Goya chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 heaping tablespoon of almond butter
1 small clove garlic
1/4 cup or more of good olive oil
sesame seeds or Eden Shake to sprinkle
grilled fresh local asparagus (optional)
I use a mini chopper.....that I can't live without. Best appliance I own.
Whiz the chickpeas w/ a little of the olive oil, sea salt, almond butter and lemon juice. Then add in more of the oil until the mixture is creamy and smooth and the consistency you like. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking.
Place hummus in bowls and decorate w/ avocado half and grilled asparagus. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Serve room temperature for best results.
By the way, I never refrigerate my hummus....it never lasts that long anyway!
