Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 4 pita breads (5 to 6 inches)
  • 6 cups bite-size vegetables for serving (such as blanched broccoli and cauliflower florets,
  • carrot and celery sticks, cucumber slices and radishes)
  • 2 (15-oz.) cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, peeled

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Meanwhile, in food processor, process garlic until minced. Add chickpeas, 1/2 cup water, lemon juice, tahini, paprika and salt. Process until smooth, scraping down bowl as necessary. Transfer hummus to medium bowl.
