Recipe Tips

Special ExtraTop beet hummus with a few beet slices and some crumbled feta cheese. Sprinkle a few roasted chickpeas (garbanzo beans), some fresh thyme and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on the plain hummus. To roast chick peas, heat oven to 375°F. Rinse 1 can (540 mL) chickpeas; drain, then pat dry with paper towels. Remove and discard any loose skins. Toss with 3 Tbsp. olive oil; spread onto foil-covered rimmed baking sheet. Bake 45 to 55 min. or until chickpeas are crunchy, stirring occasionally. Add 1/4 tsp. salt and 2 tsp. of your favourite combination of dry seasonings, such as garlic powder, ground cumin and/or ground cayenne pepper; stir to evenly coat chickpeas with seasoning mixture. Spread into even layer on baking sheet; cool completely.
