Pizza hummus? Yeah, I went there. Hummus is one of my go to snacks. I love regular hummus, black bean hummus, white bean, even lentil hummus. It’s just so easy and so satisfying. I was playing around in the kitchen trying to mimic a tomato basil hummus I had over the weekend, and realized I could totally tweak it and make it pizza like. I was so pleasantly surprised and I totally recommend whipping this up!
- 1 can organic chickpeas – rinsed, save half the liquid (about 1/4 cup)
- 1/4 tahini
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 2 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1-2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (i used 1 1/2)
- Juice from 1 small lemon
- large pinch of salt & pepper
- drizzle of olive oil
Toss everything in a food processor. While ingredients are blending, drizzle in olive oil, enough to get it smooth and flowing. Serve with fresh veggies or some whole grain pita chips.
