1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
½ teaspoon salt
2 ½ tablespoons Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar
¼ cup water
1/3 cup tahini*, well stirred
1/3 cup Olive Oil**
Place the chickpeas, garlic, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process for 15 to 20 seconds. Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl and process for another 15 to 20 seconds. Add the Sicilian Lemon Vinegar and water; process 20 seconds. Add the tahini; process 20 seconds and scrape down bowl.
With the processor running, drizzle in ¼ cup olive oil and continue to process until fairly smooth.
To serve, place the hummus in a serving bowl and drizzle with additional olive oil. Serve with pita bread wedges.
* Tahini is sesame seed paste. It can be found in most supermarkets.
** The choice of oils to use in our hummus recipe are wide. Try one of our Unflavored Olive Oils or be even more creative and use Milanese Gremolata, Tuscan Herb, Chipotle or Lemon.
