In Zoe’s Kitchen: Everyday Hummus

Everyday Hummus

It’s been awhile since we’ve aired an episode of In Zoe’s Kitchen. Almost a year if we’re keeping track 😳.  Zoe begged me this past week to start filming again.  So today as soon as we got back from a short trip to the farm, we walked into the house, dropped our bags,  and quite literally pulled out the camera and started filming. I am so glad we did. The kitchen is one of Zoe’s favorite places. Put a camera on her in the kitchen, and it’s a recipes for sheer entertainment.

The weather here has been unseasonably warm.  Eighty degrees today (we’re not complaining), so a summer-like snack was in order even though it is still winter in the Midwest. One of our favorite go-to summer snacks is hummus.  It’s easy to whip up a big batch, and there are ton of variations you can do depending on your favorite flavors.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 15 oz can Chickpeas
  • 2 T. – 1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 T. water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (1 entire large lemon)
  • 1/4 cup Tahini
  • 2 cloves of garlic or 1 if you prefer a milder taste
  • pinch of Paprika
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

Drain and rinse chickpeas. Pour the chickpeas into food processor and add all other ingredients in the food processor as well. Blend until smooth. If you like a smoother texture, add more EVOO and/or water to taste. We like to add a little bit more of both.
