smoked oyster hummus with roast garlic & sundried tomatoes

I have been thinking that the wonderful flavour of smoked oysters would work well with hummus, so I took a basic hummus recipe and flexed it a bit.

Smoked Oyster Hummus with Roast Garlic & Sundried Tomatoes

  • 2c prepared chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tin smoked oysters (or, you could flex your smoked mussels instead)
  • oil from tinned oysters + olive oil to equal 2 tbsp
  • 2 garlic bulbs, roasted — put it all in
  • 2 – 4 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
  • 2 generous pinches ground cumin
  • sea salt to taste
  • sundried tomato for garnish
  • smoked paprika for garnish

Combine all ingredients, less 3 or 4 oysters, in a food processor.  Process until smooth, adjusting salt, cumin and lemon juice to taste.  Garnish with remaining oysters, diced, diced sundried tomatoes and a sprinkle of smoked paprika.

This hummus is particularly yummy following 24 hours of refrigeration.
