Spicy Hummus Dip…

20 Apr

Hummus is a healthy alternative to dips, mayo, and other sandwich spreads.  Try it as a dip with raw veggies or pita chips, and on sandwiches and wraps. It’s also very filling and chock full of protein.

Here’s a recipe for Spicy Hummus Dip posted by TWICEAGAIN at sparkpeople.com that I can’t wait to try:


      1 19 oz can Chickpeas, drained & rinsed
      Juice of 1 lemon
      Pulp of 1 whole Garlic bulb, roasted
        1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
      1 tsp ground Cumin
      1 tsp Paprika
      1/2 tsp Curry powder
      4 tbsp chopped fresh Cilantro
      1/3 cup Tahini
      2 tbsp Olive Oil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Keeping skin on garlic bulb, carefully cut the top of the bulb in order to expose all of the individual cloves.

Place on tin foil and drizzel with 1/4 tsp of the Olive Oil. Wrap bulb up like a Hershey’s Kiss and roast in oven for 30 min.

Meanwhile, drain and rinse Chickpeas well. Place in food processor along with remaining ingredients. Once garlic has finished roasting, squeeze pulp in with other ingredients and whiz until well blended.

Feel free to add or reduce the amount of garlic and omit the cayenne pepper in order to personalize this recipe if you’d like

Serving size is 1/4 cup.
Goes great with whole wheat flat bread and raw veggies!

Makes 10 servings.
