Jamaican Jerk Hummus

jamaican jerk hummusMost folks don’t associate hummus with Jamaica…. but here I’ve combined jerk seasoning with some chickpeas to create Jamaican Jerk Hummus.

Hummus is a dip traditionally made with chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic is not only a tasty treat, it is quite nutritious.  The chickpea itself has a good amount of protein, plus a good source of folate, iron, and zinc.  No wonder it is a vegetarian staple.

The mild taste of the chickpea lends itself well to many different taste sensations… take a look at your local grocery store and you will find several different varieties of hummus. With this in mind, I set upon creating a hummus that would capture the spice and flavors of Jamaican cuisine.
