Creole-Style Hummus with Pita Chips

This version of hummus has just enough 'kick' to get your attention. It's so flavorful and yummy, it will become your go-to recipe for hummus. 


2 cups cooked chickpeas, rinsed well
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup sesame tahini
juice of 1 fresh lemon
1 teaspoon brown rice syrup
3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
sea salt

Pita chips:

4 whole wheat pita breads
extra virgin olive oil

Place all ingredients, except salt in a food processor and puree until smooth. Season to taste with salt, adjust seasoning to taste and puree, slowly adding water to achieve a creamy consistency. To make the pita chips, preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Slice pita bread into 8 triangular wedges and arrange on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with paprika. Bake until crisp, 10-12 minutes. Transfer to a basket. Transfer to a serving bowl, with pita chips on the side. Makes 3-4 cups hummus.
