Homemade Party Hummus

Holiday parties can be full of junk food, sweet drinks, and heavy desserts.   Most don't consider healthy eating at a party, but definitely appreciate when healthy options are offered.  Try bringing a tray of veggies for dipping with this delicious, simple, healthy, homemade hummus from scratch and watch those party goers swarm!

Homemade Party Hummus

3 cups cooked chick peas, or 2 cans, drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup sesame oil*
1/3 of a lemon's juice & zest
1 tbsp rice vinegar or white vinegar
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp smoked paprika

Put all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.  Add more salt if needed.  Process again.

* Try adding 1/4 cup of any of the following into processor for flavored hummus:
- roasted red peppers
- fresh basil and sundried tomatoes
- olives
- roasted garlic (just 3 or 4 cloves)

* You can substitute oil with 1/4 cup tahini paste, and slowly add water (about 1/3 cup) until desired consistency.
