Herb Hummus With Dill

Dill PhotoHummus is one of life's great treats. Even before it became popular in the U.S., I was a fan of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), and used them in soups and salads. This easy hummus recipe spices things up a little. Give it a try on a hot summer day. It's filling and refreshing.

Herb Hummus With Dill Recipe

1 (12 – 15oz) can of chickpeas
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves (sliced)
1½ teaspoons dried dill
½ teaspoon dried mustard
½ teaspoon smoked paprika (sweet if possible)
salt to taste

Combine ingredients in a food processor until smooth. The consistency should be creamy. If it starts to pull away from the sides of the processor and form a ball, it's too dry; add a little more olive oil. Chill.

Serve with pita bread, crackers, or fresh vegetables. Don't forget to add a sprig of dill to the bowl for garnish.
