Recipe of the Week: Peanut Butter Hummus, by A.S.

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblr

How would you like a quick homemade dip for those dinner guests that arrive suddenly or a quick, healthy dip for your family that is nutritious, easy, and healthy to boot? This will take just 15 minutes of your time and make 1kilo/2.2 pounds of delicious dip ready to eat with carrot or celery sticks.

Note : If you are cutting the unhealthy carbs from junk, such as deep fried takeout, this is an ideal alternative.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups canned chick peas (garbanzo beans), drained until all the “froth” from the water is gone
  • 6 Tbsp peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice (bottled lemon juice is fine )
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 6 cloves of fresh garlic
  • 3 Tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp ground rock salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and mix in the olive oil.
  2. Do short bursts of your blender till the chick peas are no longer whole and the whole mix is firm but not runny.
  3. Sprinkle crushed peanuts over the dip and serve!

Once blended, you can taste test your dip and add more lemon juice or salt according to taste; some olive oil rises to the surface after a day and the garlic brings out the texture and taste of all this spicy Mediterranean dip. You can even use this for meats as a garnish as well. To add more variety, I add some chili and other herbs to give a variation, so enjoy.

It will last in the fridge for up to 7 days (though it never lasts long in our fridge)!
