But I'm not in love with the $3-4/cup price of it in store.
So, this week on cooking day, I tried a spicy hummus recipe I found online somewhere. But, 'spicy' being a relative term, it didn't quite do it for me.
Here's the recipe I ended up with. It could still use a little more spice, but I wanted to let it 'steep' in the fridge for a couple of days and check the spice level before adding more. So far, I'm thinking more would be better. (I like the spicy to make my ears warm... if you don't like it that spicy, no need to worry - this recipe doesn't do that.)
Spicy Hummus Recipe
1 can chickpeas
2 Tbsp tahini seseme paste
1/8 cup olive oil
1 tsp crushed pepper flakes
1 tsp ground cumin
1 clove garlic, crushed (I used 1 tsp garlic powder)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup water (or could add oil?)
1/2-1tsp tobbasco sauce
1 Tbsp paprika (for color and slightly smoky flavor)
Blend all in food processor and serve with crackers, chips, veggies... whatever.
