Toasted Pine Nut Hummus

Gotta love a good hummus. This one gets a nutty taste from the toasted pine nuts.

15 oz can of chickpeas
1⁄3 cup tahini
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted in a pan on the stovetop
olive oil, for serving
fresh thyme, for serving
pita chips

  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  2. Place chickpeas, tahini, lemon, and pine nuts in a blender and process until very smooth. If it seems a little too thick just add some water.
  3. Spoon into a bowl and serve with a dash of olive oil, pine nuts, and fresh thyme.
