The addition of some fresh vegetables in this hummus is a nice touch.  Use it generously to provide flavor and protein for wraps, dips, Veggie Sandwiches and for Vegapizza (shown).


16 oz(s) garbanzo beans
1 stalks celery -- chopped
1/4 cup(s) parsley -- chopped
1 garlic clove(s) -- medium to small sized
1/2 tsp cumin -- or to taste
1/4 tsp cayenne (hot) pepper
1/4 cup(s) parmesan cheese
2 tbsp olive oil


1.  Chop vegetables and put into blender.  Add all other ingredients and blend until smooth.  Taste and add salt gradually starting with 1/4 tsp.  Use another Tbsp. olive oil to loosen if needed.

Serve with chips, pita pieces, cut vegetables or part of a recipe.
