Pesto Hummus
Recipe type: Appetizer
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3 cups
  • 1 (15 ounce/425 g) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini (I prefer Ziyad brand, but any will do.)
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 3 or 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  1. In the bowl of the food processor, add the beans, tahini, pesto, and garlic. Process for a few seconds to get the mixture started. While the processor runs, begin drizzling in the seasoned olive oil, starting with 2 tablespoons, adding more as necessary to create a smooth paste. Serve with raw vegetables, whole wheat pita chips, or baguette slices, and also good as a sandwich condiment.
