Lemony Smoked Paprika Hummous

Work really gets in the way of my life.

Well…. that, and that we went to Switzerland last weekend……………………..


……………..and did some skiing, and for the first time in 3 visits…. I did not come back with an injury! Wooo! (previously I have hurt my shoulder, and then the next time we went I caught the edge of my ski on the skicross and skidded ON MY FACE! lol)

But I digress. I have been working on a couple of things (secret things), and making some tasty tasty sourdough, but nothing to post for a while.

Good news! This morning I had a whole 3 and a half hours where I wasn’t on call so I decided to make some stuff!

Lemony Smoked Paprika Hummous Recipe – from Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.


1 15oz can chickpeas, liquid reserved, rinsed and drained

2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed, and the zest of a lemon

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp smoke paprika


Put the chickpeas in a food processor and pulse until there are no whole chickpeas left, then add the remainder of the ingredients and process to a puree, adding some of the reserved liquid from the can if needed, scraping down the sides of the food processor bowl to make sure you get everything.




Then, I also made some baked falafel to go with it and made some wraps for lunch!


Yum. Yum. Yum. And some leftover for lunch tomorrow!
