Quick Appetizers

I will be posting a appetizer everyday to help with your holiday party planning. These are great recipes to have on hand, and can be made ahead and stored.

Mediterranean Hummus

½ cup fresh flat leave Italian parsley
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp kosher salt
2 garlic cloves
2 (15 1/2oz) cans garbanzo beans, or chickpeas, drained
1/8 cup Tahini
1/8 cup fresh lemon juice
2 to 4 Tbs water
1 tsp ground cumin
1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil

 Insert chopping blade into your food processor. Pulse the parsley, lemon zest, salt, and garlic together , about 8 times. Scrape down bowl, add remaining ingredients, and process for about one minute. Scrape down sides of bowl, and continue processing until smooth, about 30 seconds.

Serve with pita chips, or vegetables.

Makes 2 cups
