There’s 2 movies we’ve seen lately that I would highly recommend watching. ‘The Vow’, I know total chick flick, and ‘We bought a Zoo’, also super cute. I’ve watched both quite a few times already. Granted it did take me a couple days to make it through them the first place, but that’s what happens when you have a really cute tiny human hanging around, and that’s ok because that’s what pvr’s are for.
Ok, so those movies really have nothing to do with this spicy hummus, but I thought I would share them anyways.
I’ve only found a few hummus’s that I really like. There’s one from Costco, a Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, love that one. And well, this one. It’s spicy, packed with flavor and works really great as a dip served with crackers, or as a spread on a sandwich.
For dipping, I prefer Wheat thins. And if you go the sandwich route, try spreading it on a 9 Grain Ciabatta bun, toasted, with cucumber, avocado, tomato and spinach. You will not be let down!
This lasted roughly 2, maybe 2 1/2 days in our house, only because we devoured it.
(Adapted from White on Rice)
1 19oz can of Chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsp Sambal Oelek Hot Chili Paste, more or less to taste
3 Small garlic Cloves, minced
1/2 tsp medium curry powder
1/4 cup water, more or less depending on thickness
1 tbsp lime juice, about 1/4 fresh lime
In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients and blend well.
After about a minute, scrape down the sides with a spatula and continue blending until smooth.
Test dip for flavor, if it needs more water, chili paste, lime, etc. Transfer to bowl and serve with crackers….. Or grab a spoon and eat it alone, like Scotty.
