Pine Nut Hummus

Yields: 2 cups

*2 Tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
*2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
*2 Tablespoons olive oil
*1 garlic clove
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*15 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
*1/4 cup roasted pine nuts
*1/4 cup water
*dried parsley, olive oil, and pine nuts for garnish (if desired)

1. In a blender or food processor, add all ingredients and pulse or blend, scraping down the sides as needed. Process or blend until you have a smooth, creamy consistency. Add more warm water a tiny bit at a time if the hummus is still too thick.
2. Pour it into a bowl and drizzle a small amount of olive oil on top. Sprinkle with dried parsley and pine nuts if desired.
3. Serve with pita chips or raw veggies.
4. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.

NOTES: We have made this a few times in the past couple of months. I think this is so much better the next day!

Tahini can usually be found in the Asian aisle at the grocery store. It is an expensive ingredient, but you usually only use a bit at a time - You need to use it to make the hummus taste right.
