Truffled Hummus with Baked Pita Chips
Sophisticated but easy homemade hummus dip with garlic, a little lemon, and plenty of truffle oil. It's like no other hummus you have tasted and you will never want it any other way!
- 1 can chickpeas , drained
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 1/2 cup truffle oil (If your truffle oil is very strong, use half olive oil)
- 1/2 lemon , juiced
- 1 1/2 tsp salt , or more to taste
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Put all ingredients (but only half of the truffle oil to start) for the hummus into a food processor. Blend well until smooth. You might have to keep scraping down the sides.
Taste it and either add the rest of the truffle oil or use olive oil instead if your hummus is very truffly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
MAKE THE PITAS
Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Spread out the pitas and brush olive oil over both sides. Cut the pitas into 8ths and place on a parchment lined baking tray.
Sprinkle with the salt, garlic powder, herb de provence and the parmesan cheese.
Bake for 6 or 7 mins and remove from the oven. Let them cool slightly before serving.
