What’s better than hummus with veggies and pita bread for a snack? Homemade hummus with veggies and pita bread. Details below!
1/3 cup sesame seeds
2-3 tbsp olive oil
1 can garbanzo beans – drained and rinsed
1 can cannellini beans – drained and rinsed (reserve 1/3 cup
liquid prior to draining)
1 lemon – juiced
4 garlic cloves – roughly chopped
2 tsp red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/3 cup Frank’s buffalo wings sauce (plus extra for drizzling)
1/4 cup blue, gorgonzola or feta cheese
Carrots, celery, cucumbers or whole wheat pita (for dipping)
1. Make the Tahini paste. In a small pan over medium-low heat, toast the sesame seeds until light brown. Put seeds in a food processor or blender and add olive oil, blending until it comes together into a runny paste. It will make roughly 1/4 cup of paste.
2. Add beans, some of the bean liquid, lemon juice, garlic, vinegar, salt and hot sauce. Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth. If it’s not smooth enough, add more bean liquid and lemon juice until it reaches your desired consistency.
3. Taste for seasoning. Add more salt if needed. Pour into a container and top with cheese and a drizzle of hot sauce.
4. Store in refrigerator. Serve with carrots, celery, cucumbers or pita bread.
