Horseradish Hummus

I can't tell you how good it feels to be in the kitchen again, making real food! And I thought what better way for me to get back to food blogging than by having a new hummus recipe. I was recently named "Queen of Hummus" by 2 of my favorite food bloggers, Kalyn and Alanna, which is very flattering. I love all things hummus, as you can tell from my 12 different variations in my archives. Not only is hummus super easy to make, but it's also a great healthy snack.

Those who know me best know I love anything spicy and horseradish fits that bill perfectly. Feel free to decrease or increase the amount of horseradish, based on your own personal taste. This spread is great on tortilla chips, crackers, or fresh vegetables.

Horseradish Hummus

Horseradish Hummus
1 can (15.5 oz) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp freshly ground horseradish (I used the jarred kind)
1/4 c good extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until well combined. Chill in refrigerator for an hour or two to allow flavors to get friendly. Serve and enjoy!

I so have to try this one. I think DH would love it! He lurves horseradish and we both really loved your roasted red pepper hummus. I blogged about it the other day.

You *are* the Queen of Hummus, there is absolutely no doubt about it! This one sounds just as great as your others. I love, love, love horseradish in anything so I'm already loving it.

Alanna said...

Yes you definitely need a Hall of Hummus so we can get to the variety when hummus calls - THIS one tops my list (today).

I think you're about to become my hummus hero. I adore this idea. I bet it would be good with wasabi too.

Heather - glad you enjoyed the hummus! You've got to try this one if you love horseradish.

Kalyn - *blush* Thanks so much. I am in love with horseradish too, and I've been trying to use the rest of it in different recipes. Keep your eyes peeled next week for more!

Alanna - I love the idea of a Hall of Hummus. It does have its own heading under my archives.

Leslie - Mmmm.....wasabi!

RLB - you betcha!

Carla - you absolutely have to try. It's much much easier than you think, and I love that you can control the ingredients that go into it.
