Recipe by xtine
READY IN: 10mins
YIELD: 1 1/2 cups




  • Place all ingredients EXCEPT THE WATER AND THE SALT in the bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture is a thick paste.
  • With the food processor running, add the hot water a bit at a time, until the mixture is the consistency you want it to be (some like it thicker than others -- ).
  • Taste the hummus. The pepperoncini brine will have made it a bit salty. If you'd like more salt, add it 1/8 of a teaspoon at a time until it is salty enough for your tastes.
  • If you are serving immediately, place in a bowl and make a hollow in the middle of the hummus. Drizzle on 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with smoked paprika and parsley.
