The Arabic Food Recipes kitchen (The Home of Delicious Arabic Food Recipes) invites you to try Hummus Dip...Two Ways (Regular and Sundried Tomato) Recipe.  Enjoy Middle Eastern food and learn how to make Hummus Dip...Two Ways (Regular and Sundried Tomato). 

Yield: 6 , Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

1 14-oz cancanned chickpeas; drained and rinsed
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp sesame seed paste (tahini)
2 tbsp lemon juice; freshly squeezed
0.25 tsp ground cumin
1 extra virgin olive oil / water; (for thinning dip)
1 Salt
1 tbsp sundried tomatoes

Preparation

Garnish:
paprika
olive oil
fresh flat leaf parsley,chopped
sundried tomatoes,chopped*
basil*

*(optional...only if you are doing the sundried tomato kind)

Directions:

Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Reserve about 1 TBS of chickpeas for garnish.Add chickpeas to a food processor. Slice garlic(or use a garlic press) and add to chickpeas. I added 2 TBS of sesame seeds, but if you have tahini use that instead. Add the cumin and a pinch or two of kosher salt.

Process till fine.Add lemon juice and pulse a few times. Adjust seasoning. With the motor running add about 2-4 TBS oil. It is at this point, that you can divide the dip in half. If you want to make the sundried tomato kind, take out half of the mixture and set it aside. Otherwise, just leave it all in the food processor and proceed to the next step. With the other half that is still in the food processor, adjust the seasoning.If it still is not thin enough, add some water(about 1 TBS at a time)while the motor is running till you reach your desired consistency..... Remove from the food processor and place in a bowl. Place some reserved chickpeas on top, sprinkle with some paprika, and drizzle some olive oil. Top with some chopped parsley.

To make the sundried tomato hummus:

Use the other half of the hummus (that you reserved) and place it back in the food processor. Add about 1 TBS sundried tomatoes and process till fine. Add some water to thin it out....if you need to. Adjust seasoning. Place in another bowl and top with chopped sundried tomatoes and drizzle some olive oil. Place a sprig or two of basil as a garnish.
