Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields about 40  hors d’oeuvres.

 

Ingredients

  • 15-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large clove garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbs. tahini (mixed well before measuring)
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

Preparation

  • Put the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, olive oil, cumin, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 2 Tbs. water in a food processor. Process until the mixture is smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • Use a vegetable peeler to peel the cucumber skin lengthwise at 1/4-inch intervals to create a striped pattern. Slice the cucumber crosswise into 1/4-inch rounds and set them on a platter.
  • To assemble, lightly salt the cucumber rounds. Top each round with a generous teaspoon of hummus, and top the hummus with a small dollop of the yogurt. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Make Ahead Tips

You can make the hummus up to four days ahead; just refrigerate it in an airtight container. Bring the hummus to room temperature before using.
