Peanut Butter Humus Recipe
I was at Kroger's today and I made the mistake of not picking up some tahini. I have been dying to make some hummus since I got my new food processor. I had tried to make it before, but it was a huge fail. So, I got home, and realized I didn't have the key ingredient to my hummus. I didn't start to feel too disappointed, as I know the Internet is always on my side. Diligently I searched for ways to make up for the fact that I didn't have any tahini. I wasn't even quite sure what "Tahini" was, I just new it was one of the main ingredients and "Hummus isn't Hummus without it". The description said that tahini was a past made from sesame seeds with the same consistency as peanut butter. So I though to myself, "Why not just use peanut butter?". Of course not a lot, just a little bit to flavor. This is where I came up with the idea of Peanut Butter Hummus. It actually turned out great! I think I'll continue making my hummus this way from now on.
I don't cook well with recipes. I don't believe in measuring out ingredients. I just add bits of this and bits of that, and taste it as I go. So, this is my recipe list, if you're in need of measurements-- google it!
Peanut Butter Hummus
1 can chick peas
1 scoop peanut butter
2 table spoons Olive Oil
garlic powder, minced garlic, parsley, cilantro leaves, basil, curry powder, crushed rosemary, salt, and red pepper flakes.
If you're in desperate need of some hummus, and don't have tahini-- don't fear! Peanut butter makes a great replacement!
