Peanut Butter Hummus

Whenever I mention my love of hummus on my blog, I usually get several responses ranging from "me, too!" to "I've never tried it!" So, I thought I'd share my recipe. There are many recipes and many variations out there ... this is just the one I started with and I've stuck with it.

Peanut Butter Hummus

1 can chickpeas (15-19 oz)
1/3 cup warm water
4 T. peanut butter
2 T. olive oil
3 T. lemon or lime juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 t. salt

In a food processor, combine all ingredients and blend to a dip consistency. If it is too thick, add more warm water 1 T. at a time.

Serve peanut putter humus immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 3 days. Serve with fresh celebry, carrots, and broccoli. Warm pita or french bread cubes also do well. My favorite is with apple slices.

Enjoy!
