Ingredients

HUMMUS

  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas or 3 cups cooked chickpeas, drained
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used cashew milk)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2-3 cloves garlic peeled
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste

SALAD TOPPING

  • 1/2 cucumber peeled, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 5 small radishes sliced and cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 4 kalamata olives pitted and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate vinegar or white balsamic or white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Aleppo pepper or red pepper flakes or paprika see notes

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly oil a shallow baking dish or pie pan.
  • Place all hummus ingredients into a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth. Spread into the prepared baking dish. Bake for about 20 minutes or until heated through.
  • While hummus is in the oven, prepare the salad topping. Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  • Spread the salad over the hummus and serve hot with pita bread as an appetizer.

Notes

Aleppo pepper is medium spicy, and it's what I prefer in this recipe. Use red pepper flakes to make it very spicy or paprika to keep it mild.
One serving on Weight Watchers Freestyle program is 1 point, though 2 servings is 3 points.
