2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
2 tablespoons juice from 1 lemon
¼ tsp coarse salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup of chopped peanuts (optional)
¼ pinch of smoked, hot paprika (optional), plus more for garnish
Place the chickpeas, garlic, peanut butter, and lemon juice in a food processor and process until smooth. Slowly drizzle in olive oil with processor running. If necessary, add water by the tablespoon in between pulses until the desired texture is reached. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl and sprinkle the chopped peanuts and then the paprika on top, if desired. Drizzle with additional olive oil if desired. Serve with warm flatbread and vegetables.
