    Sesquipedalian Sapphist's Note:

    Party-sized batch! A very flavorful twist on an ancient dish with a blend of sweet, tangy, and spicy. Serve with fresh veggies, warm pita wedges, or crackers.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut off both ends of each clove of garlic and remove outer layer of skin. In a toaster oven or conventional oven roast garlic for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees. Garlic will be slightly golden and a little soft.
    2. 2
      In food processor, blend until smooth lime juice, tahini, water, garlic, basil, and pepper (to taste).
    3. 3
      Add garbanzo beans gradually and blend for several minutes until mixture is a smooth, thick paste.
    4. 4
      Add roasted red peppers and sun dried tomatoes and process again until well combined.
    5. 5
      If necessary, stop processor and scrape sides with a spatula. (Hummus will thicken if refrigerated, so add more water--up to an additional 1/2 cup—if it seems too thick).
    6. 6
      Ideally, hummus be served at room temperature within an hour or two of making. To store, refrigerate for up to 1 week in a covered container.
    7. 7
      Garnish with drizzled olive oil and slices of roasted red peppers.
    8. 8
      Surround with warm pita wedges or crackers and serve with fresh vegetables.

      this was a treat. I prepared a version that omitted the roastedd red peppers and it was good, but I also did a small version as as directed. It was great with some cucumber and carrots. YUM.
