Submitted by: PAULSTGEORGE


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas (garbanzo), rinsed and drained well
    Juice from 1 lemon (about 1/4 cup)
    3/4 tsp. kosher or sea salt
    1-2 cloves garlic, very finely minced
    1/4 cup plain yogurt

    3 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

    1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
    Minced fresh parsley

Tips

Serve it in a pita pocket with falafal.


Directions

In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, salt, garlic and yogurt. Process for 1 minute, then open the food processor and scrape the sides. Process for another minute.

While the processor is running, pour in the olive oil. Taste and check for smooth consistency. If the hummus is too thick, add 1 tablespoon of water.

Just before serving, sprinkle with smoked paprika, fresh parsley and drizzle with additional olive oil.
