  • 4 cloves Garlic Clove
  • 1/2 tsp Spices - Smoked Paprika
  • 2 tbsp Tahini
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Pignoli Pine Nuts
  • 1 pinch Salt


1 Rinse and drain chickpeas.
2 Juice 1 lemon.
3 Combine the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
4 Adjust salt as needed.
5 In a dry pan over medium heat, toast the pine nuts until fragrant.
6 Use a spoon to create a well in the center of the hummus, drizzle a touch of oil and then add the nuts.
