Back-To-Basics Hummus Recipe

Find Recipes invites you to try Back-To-Basics Hummus Recipe

This tried-and-true hummus recipe can be the foundation for myriad variations, such as the addition of chipotle chiles, tapenade, roasted garlic, or marinated artichokes. On the other hand, it's pretty darn good just the way it is, too. Tahini is made from ground sesame seeds and is widely available in natural food stores, specialty grocers, and well-stocked supermarkets.

1 1⁄2 cups cooked or 1 (15.5-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1⁄4 cup tahini (sesame paste)
Juice of 1 lemon
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon ground cayenne
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sweet or smoked paprika, for garnish

In a food processor, process the garlic until finely minced. Add the chickpeas and tahini and process until smooth. Add the lemon juice, salt to taste, and cayenne and process until well combined. With the machine running, stream in the oil and process until smooth. Taste, adjusting seasonings if necessary. Transfer to a medium bowl and sprinkle with paprika to serve. If not using right away, cover and refrigerate until needed. Properly stored it will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
