Mediterranean Dinner

For a light Friday night dinner we had wine (I had none :(...) Hummus, Crostini brushed with olive oil, and Caprese salad.....Mmmmmmm! It was filling enough, without leaving us too full. Just perfect.

Mediterranean Hummus

1 -16 ounce can Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) drained

2 small cloves garlic peeled

1/3 cup Tahini

¼ cup Olive Oil

¼ teaspoon Paprika

¼ teaspoon Cumin

Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

Juice of 1-2 Lemons (to taste)

Salt and Pepper

In the food processor, combine chickpeas, garlic, Tahini, Olive Oil, lemon juice, and spices. Pulse until well mixed, and creamy. Adjust salt to taste. Serve with pita chips, crostini, cut veggies or any other type of bread.

We paired ours with olive oil brushed sourdough toasted bread, and made crostini's.

...and a simple Caprese salad! YUM


  1. Quick and full of flavor-the perfect friday night dinner before the weekend. I would have loved to been at your house for this dinner-yum!
