Wanted to find a quick, easy, hummus recipe that didn't call for tahini (which I never have on hand)...

I have just recently been "introduced" to hummus and I love all the varieties. My favorite part of this recipe was the peanut butter instead of the tahini. It was just a little less bitter. This is my new fav!

Good! I might have been a bit heavy on the PB and also, I only had dried parsley. I think it will be better after a day or so. Any ideas on how to get a super smooth consistency? I might need a different food processor. Thanks!
