Hummus can be flavored with all sorts of vegetables, herbs, and nuts. So, why not the ever-abundant pimiento? The flavor came out much more subtle than I expected, which is a good thing. I was dreading the possibility of it tasting like puréed pimiento.
*1 15 oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas, whatever you call them)
*1/2 C tahini paste
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tb lemon juice
salt to taste
*1 4 oz jar chopped pimientos
*Olive oil as needed
1. Drain garbanzo beans and pimientos. Rinse if you prefer lower salt.
2. Place all ingredients except oil in food processor and purée until smooth. Add oil sparingly to create desired consistency.
3. Chill and serve with pita or bread.
