Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain and rinse garbanzo beans.
  2. In a food processor or blender, combine garbanzo beans, sun-dried tomatoes, tahini, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, dill, and black pepper until smooth. (Pretty much everything goes in here except the paprika and the olive oil!). Set aside.
  3. Now you choose to cut the 1/2 pita into wedges, slice the vegetables into sticks (keep the cherry tomatoes whole) and top the hummus with the olive oil and paprika and use the hummus as a dip.
  4. -- OR --
  5. Open the half pita, shred or julienne the vegetables (cutting the tomatoes in half) and fill the pita first with half the hummus, a bit of the paprika and olive oil, some of the vegetables, and then alternate. Use what's left as a side dip.
