My family and I love purchasing and making fresh hummus in our house. I was interested in trying to make a new flavor. So I went ahead and made an asparagus hummus to enjoy with some crackers and veggies. The flavor of the asparagus really comes out. I think this is just another way to add more nutrition to your hummus. This hummus has a refreshing finish too. Enjoy as a snack or with your next get together.
2 (15.5 oz) Can of Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
10 Asparagus Spears
3 Garlic cloves
Salt & Pepper, to taste
1/2 to 1 cup of Extra Virgin Olive oil
Juice and Zest of 1 Lemon
In a medium pot bring water to a boil and add asparagus. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. In a medium bowl with cold water and ice add asparagus. This will stop the cooking process.
Take a food processor and add chickpeas, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic cloves, asparagus, lemon zest and lemon juice. Blend for 2 minutes until everything is well combined and smooth.
Pour into a bowl and enjoy.
