I have a tendency to overdo things.
Bigger...Bolder...Spicier...these are words I like!!
When I first started cooking my spice cabinet became my favorite new toy and anything I made included at least 10 of my little friends. Some of their names being garlic powder, onion powder and red pepper flakes among my best buddies.
We were having a great time but the romance couldn’t last.
As much as I loved the kick of flavor my friends added to my new creations it was sometimes just too much. It took me a long time to realize that MORE isn’t always BETTER…I know, it's a hard to accept.
Eventually the roamance faded and me and my favorite buddies saw each other less and less and hummus like this were able to be born.
Simple and yet PERFECT…
1 15-19oz can Garbanzo Beans (aka chick peas)
2 Heads Roasted Garlic (click for how to roast garlic)
10 Large Basil leaves
¼ - ½ cup Olive Oil
Combine everything besides oil in a food processor and pulse. Stream in olive oil while your food processor is on until you get a smooth consistency.
- As with many dips and hummus the longer this sits in the fridge the better it tastes
- Don’t be afraid of salt! This needs quite a bit!
