Citrus-Lovers Hummus
Prep Time10 Minutes
Servings6
Cook Time5 Minutes
Ingredients
2 (14-ounce) cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 (14-ounce) can white beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup tahini
1 medium clove garlic
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon sumac*
Lemon pepper or freshly ground black pepper to taste (optional)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice**
3-4 tablespoons fresh lime juice**
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest**
1 teaspoon grated lime zest**
3-4 tablespoons water or several ice cubes to thin as desired
Directions

Combine all the ingredients except the zests and water in a food processor. Puree until smooth. If it’s too thick, add water 1 tablespoon at a time or an ice cube. Continue until you have a very smooth puree. (Sometimes you need to puree hummus much longer than you think - keep going and be sparing with your water or ice so it doesn’t become too watery.) Add the

zests and pulse to mix. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper or other spices as desired.

*Sumac Note: Sumac adds another layer of lemony flavor to this hummus. If you don’t have sumac, you can also try adding 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin or smoked paprika for additional flavor, or simply omit it.

**Lemon/Lime Note: Since citrus plays such a big flavor role in this hummus, do not substitute store-bought lemon and lime juices. Freshly squeezed juice is important. Plus, you’ll need the zest of those lemons and limes for added flavor. Preferably, opt for organic lemons and limes when collecting zest.
