Hummus of the Holy Week: Hearts of Palm

First off, I hope my picture isn't offensive to anyone... it's, um... art! When I was trying to come up with a "Hummus of the Holy Week," roommate Emily had the best idea: Hearts of Palm! She's brilliant! Although, I also asked her on Palm Sunday, so I'm sure that had something to do with it...

4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can chick peas, drained
1/2 can hearts of palm (I bought the "salad size")
1/3 cup tahini
Juice of 2 lemons
1.5 tsp salt
a few dashes of Frank's Red Hot (this may be a little fallible.. but unlike ketchup, it only has a handful of ingredients, all completely pronounceable)

You should know how to turn this into hummus by now (thank you, food processor!). Also, if I haven't mentioned this on past hummus posts, this is just the Barefoot Contessa hummus with a special guest star.

From the Vatican! I kid you not. That's a real Pieta from a kitchy shop at San Pietro.

I'm glad you approve! The hummus is actually quite nice.. very smooth texture.
