Ingredients

Hummus

  • 1
    can (19 oz) Progresso™ chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained, 1/4 cup liquid reserved
  • 1/2
    cup tahini
  • 1/4
    cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3
    tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2
    cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1
    teaspoon regular table salt
  • 1/8
    teaspoon pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley

Pita Chips

  • 4
    whole wheat pita (pocket) breads (6 inch)
  • 4
    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2
    teaspoon kosher (coarse) salt

Steps

  • 1
    In food processor or blender, place beans, reserved bean liquid, tahini, 1/4 cup oil, the lemon juice, garlic, table salt and pepper. Cover; blend on high speed, stopping blender occasionally to scrape down sides, until smooth. Spoon dip into serving dish. Sprinkle with parsley.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 375°F. Brush both sides of each pita bread with 1 tablespoon oil. Cut each pita bread into 8 wedges; separate wedges to make 16 wedges for each pita bread. Places wedges, oil sides up, on ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • 3
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until pita chips are crisp and lightly browned. Serve with hummus.

  • Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seed. One-half cup of sesame seed can be subbed for the tahini. The dip just won't be as smooth as if you'd used tahini.
  • Swirl the surface of the dip with the back of a spoon, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cayenne for an inviting appetizer.
  • Add a signature touch—stir in 1/4 cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes for a punch of flavor and color.
