Gotta love a good hummus. This one gets a nutty taste from the toasted pine nuts.

15 oz can of chickpeas

1⁄3 cup tahini

4 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted in a pan on the stovetop


olive oil, for serving

fresh thyme, for serving

pita chips

  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  2. Place chickpeas, tahini, lemon, and pine nuts in a blender and process until very smooth. If it seems a little too thick just add some water.
  3. Spoon into a bowl and serve with a dash of olive oil, pine nuts, and fresh thyme.
