One of my favorite things about homemade hummus (aside from its superior taste to those you buy in the store) is how you can flavor it with just about anything!
What began as an intense desire for bagels, cream cheese and lox...ended with this homemade Hummus with Smoked Salmon, Chives and Dill.
You see ...with no bagels ...and no cream cheese ...I was forced to think out of the box...
Reminding me again of one of... "Life's Little Lessons..."
"A satisfying life...is all about improvising."
Hummus with Smoked Salmon, Chives and Dill
2 15oz cans of Chickpeas
4-6 tablespoons lemon juice (depending on taste)
4 tablespoons tahini
3 cloves garlic, crushed (more if you like it garlicky)
4 -5 tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons chives, chopped
2 -3 Tablespoon dill, chopped
Smoked Salmon, chopped (as much a you like)
Place chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, garlic and olive oil in a food processor and pulse to desired consistency. Taste and adjust any ingredient to your preference.
Fold in chives and dill.
Salt and Pepper to taste - careful not to overly salt if you're adding smoked salmon
Top with smoked salmon and serve with crackers, crusty bread or pita chips.
