For the Super Bowl, my dad came over, which always means lots of snacks and beer! I think we outdid ourselves this year. I wanted to make something similar to the Hummus Quartet from Trader Joes, so I made a base hummus (2 cans of chickpeas, juice of 2 lemons, 1/4 cup of tahini, 1 T cumin, 3 cloves garlic, a little olive oil for smoothness, salt, and pepper– all blended in the food processor until ultra creamy), then divided it up into 4 bowls. I then made the following versions:
-Balsamic Hummus– Added a generous amount of balsamic vinegar along with an extra garlic clove
-Parsley Hummus– Added a big handful of fresh parsley along with an extra squeeze of lemon
-Jalapeno Hummus– Added two jalapenos, one with seeds and one without, as well as some of the juice from a jar of pepperoncinis.
-Sun Dried Tomato Hummus– Added a nice amount of canned, julienned sun dried tomatoes
It was delicious!! I think our favorite one was the jalapeno one, mostly because we like it spicy!
