Hummus is a great snack, low in calories and packed with protein. A traditional hummus recipe requires some unconventional ingredients that aren't always accessible in small town markets.  This recipe is easy, tasty AND realistic.


1 can (19 oz) chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) 
     rinsed and drained
1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
2 TBL smooth peanut butter
2 TBL olive oil (extra for drizzling)
2 TBL lemon juice (fresh preferred)
Kosher salt and fresh pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped peanuts (optional)
pinch of smoked paprika

1. Place the chickpeas, garlic, peanut butter and lemon juice into a blender or food processor; process until smooth.  Slowly drizzle in the olive oil with the processor running. If necessary, add water by the TBL until desired texture is reached. Season as desired.
2. Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl and drizzle with olive oil, chopped peanuts and paprika (if desired). Serve with warm flatbread, whole grain crackers, or vegetables.
