add a dash of cayenne pepper...

Ok... well maybe I added a bit more than just a dash... I think I added almost an entire tablespoon of cayenne pepper - suits me fine, but this isn't for the faint hearted :0)
Yes, today I am giving you my hummus recipe. This is the sort of recipe that doesn't call for anything out of the ordinary - so long as your pantry has a tin of chickpeas, I bet you have everything else in your fridge. So go forth and make this for your weekend picnic!

Hummus à la Lynne

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
4 tbsp plain peanut butter
4 tbsp plain yogurt
4 cloves of garlic, peeled
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon PLUS 1 tbsp lemon juice
dash of cumin powder
dash of cayenne pepper (or as much as you like)
salt and pepper

Grab your food processor and dump everything into it. Yep. That's it. Hit "on" and blend everything together. Season and flavour depending on your personal taste.

**If you have tahini, feel free to replace the peanut butter with it. But like I said - this really is made up of everyday, simple ingredients that you will likely already have on hand.
