Hazelnut Hummus Recipe
Yields: 2 cups
Prep time: 20 min
1 cup toasted hazelnuts (about 4 ounces) or 1/4 cup hazelnut butter
1 can (14 ounce) garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons extra-virgin
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed
salt and freshly ground
1 tablespoon hazelnut oil (optional)
To toast the hazelnuts, bake in a 375° oven until golden under skins (break one to test), 10 to 15 minutes. When cool enough to
handle, rub in a kitchen towel to remove as many skins as possible.
In a food processor, whirl hazelnuts (or hazelnut butter) until smooth. Add garbanzos, olive oil, garlic, parsley, and lemon juice, and whirl again until smooth. Add water, 1
tablespoon at a time, to thin to desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle with hazelnut oil, if desired.
Makes 2 cups hummus.
