Spicy Giardiniera Hummus

Giardiniera is a combination of hot peppers and pickled vegetables. Ever since discovering it when I lived in Chicago, I have been obsessed with putting it on everything - eggs, pasta dishes, baked potatoes, tuna salad, etc. The other day I found a gallon tub of it when I was shopping at Gordon Food Service and got super excited.
This hummus recipe is great to make at the beginning of the week and pack with fresh cut vegetables for a quick snack at work or school!

1. Place garbanzo beans, tahini, yogurt, lemon zest/juice, garlic and salt in a food processor and process for 30 seconds. 


2. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired smoothness. Add the giardiniera and pulse 5 times. Adjust seasonings as needed. 



3. Transfer hummus to a serving bowl and garnish with additional giardiniera. Serve with pita chips and fresh veggies on the side.
