Roasted Red Pepper Za'tar Hummus- Adapted from Ottolenghi

Author Notes: I make 2 lb bags of chickpeas and freeze in 2 cup portions in order to keep up with the steady demand for this hummus but it's equivalent to one can of beans in the case I run out. It's like butter, only not, because it's packed with all that amazing fiber, protein, iron and antioxidants. It's also low in sodium, no added oil, low fat, plant strong, vegan, and toddler approved so I get all warm and fuzzy when I find the licked clean bowl in the sink. Emily Wylie

Directions

  1. Puree all of the ingredients until super smooth, then puree again. I use the single serving size smoothie attachment on my blender which gives it that light - whipped consistency. Keep refrigerated in an air tight container for about a week, if it lasts that long.
