Delicate Humus

20130612-214529.jpg

This humus is so easy and so tasty. I don’t use tahini or cumin because I like to keep it fresh tasting and those two ingredients are a bit heavier. Make this humus when you have great olive oil around!

3 cups of cooked chick peas( you can use canned)
the juice of 1 large lemon
olive oil
1/2 clove of garlic minced(or none if you prefer)
sea salt
about 1/4 to 1/2 cup roasted pine nuts
fresh cilantro
A handful of Kalamata olives without pits and chopped
paprika powder

-puree the chickpeas with the hand blender or the food processor
-add a bit of olive oil, garlic and sea salt
-add the lemon juice and blend a bit more
-stir in the pine nuts(leave some for garnish)and the olives
-add the cilantro
-garnish with the pine nuts and drizzle with extra olive oil, creating a film of oil on top of the humus.
-sprinkle with paprika powder
