Herbed Summer Hummus

sb10062327ll-001No-cook summer recipes should be easy, quick, and healthy. Be ready to entertain any time with this simple crowd-pleasing hummus. Fresh herbs add depth to a classic chickpea blend bursting with flavor from rich tahini paste, fresh lemon juice and zest and savory garlic. Quick to make, you can whip this up in a matter of minutes with your food processor. Try growing thyme in your own garden this summer; for a quicker start, use seedlings instead of seeds and place growing thyme in full sunlight. Harvest thyme right before it blooms, when the flavor is most intense.



¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup tahini paste
¼ cup lemon juice
½ teaspoon fresh lemon zest
2 garlic cloves
1 ½ Tablespoons fresh thyme, picked off the stem
1 29-oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend well. Garnish with freshly ground black pepper and additional thyme leaves or stems. Serve with fresh garden veggies or whole grain crackers.
