Tuscan Hummus

I do not own this cookbook, but I do make the Tuscan Hummus recipe out of it every now and again. Oh yummy! and Oh. so. garlicky.

Hummus Ingredients

8-10 cloves of garlic
3 cups drained and rinsed canned cannellini beans
1/2 cup sesame paste (tahini)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon + 1 tsp. soy sauce
6 tablespoons of EVOO
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup cold water, if needed

Process garlic cloves in food processor until finely minced. Add beans and pulse a few times to chop coarsley. Add remaining ingredients. Blend well, add water if too thick. Chill.

If desired top with this:
California Pizza Kitchen Checca Ingredients

3 or 4 medium tomatoes, cut into 1/2" dice
1 tablespoon minced garlic (don't crush the garlic, as it will make this too bitter)
1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
kosher salt, to taste
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
