Description

This is a bold, flavorful hummus with a bit of heat. The lemon juice and zest give a wonderful brightness that my children and grandchildren seem to love. The ingredients are usually available in my pantry, so I can make this at a moment's notice. This, of course, is to my taste, and I like lots of flavor, so a little goes a long way. I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained with liquid reserved
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
Directions
  1. 1. Pour all garbanzo beans into the bowl of a food processor; pulse several times to slightly break some of the beans. Add garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, cumin, basil, salt, cayenne pepper, and ground black pepper; blend until the beans are beginning to look like large crumbs, about 1 minute.
  2. 2. With the food processor running, gradually stream reserved liquid from garbanzo beans, olive oil, and sesame oil into the beans mixture; continue to blend until all liquids are integrated with the garbanzo bean mixture into a smooth hummus.
