Smoky Hot Hummus

I hadn’t made hummus in a long time; it’s one of those things I made all the time years ago when I first went vegetarian, and then eventually stopped making almost because it was such a standby. Anyways, in this version I added some hot smoked paprika along with the usual suspects (lemon juice, tahini, salt, pepper, garlic, chickpeas) and came up with something that both looked and tasted a bit like taramasalata, a smoked fish roe spread I used to eat in Greek restaurants. Who knew? Of course, this was less fishy and salty, and hotter, than tarama– but reminiscent nonetheless. Interesting!
