Ingredients

Hummus

1
(15-oz.) can Chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained, rinsed
1
to 2 garlic cloves, halved
2
tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2
teaspoon dark (oriental) sesame oil
Dash ground red pepper (cayenne) or hot pepper sauce to taste

4

2

2

Olive oil or nonstick cooking spray
4

Directions

  • 1 Heat grill. In food processor bowl with metal blade, combine all hummus ingredients; process until smooth. If necessary, add small amount of water for creamier texture. Place hummus in small serving bowl; cover and refrigerate until serving time.

Cook 10 to 14 minutes, turning occasionally to brown evenly on all sides and removing vegetables from grill when crisp-tender. (Cooking time will vary depending on moisture content of each vegetable, grill temperature and distance from heat.)
  • 4 Place bowl of hummus in center of large platter. Arrange grilled vegetables around bowl. Serve with pita bread wedges.
