Buffalo Hummus {No Meat Athlete: Matt Frazier}

This stuff is legit. We all love it in the house! From NO MEAT ATHLETE by Matt Frazier

1 can or 1 1/2 cups (246 g) cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons (30 g) tahini
1 tablespoon (15 ml) hot sauce
1 tablespoon (15 ml) lemon juice
1/2 cup (90 g) jarred roasted red pepper
2 tablespoons (28 ml) olive oil, water or liquid from can
Cayenne pepper, to taste, for serving

1. Combine all the ingredients except the oil (or water) and cayenne. in a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine and then scrape down the sides. With the motor running, stream in the oil (or water) through the feed tube.

2. Continue to run the motor until you reach the desired consistency; I like to let it for for 5 minutes to get it really smooth.

3. Add more salt, lemon juice, or hot sauce, to taste, and then sprinkle with cayenne pepper before serving. Angela’s note: I also sprinkled it with cumin, smoked paprika, and more hot sauce.
