I'm hosting my neighborhood book club tomorrow evening, and I decided to make a hummus sampler with various dippers (carrots, cucumbers, pita chips). I got inspiration from hummus at the store, but I always make my own. I decided to serve some plain, some roasted red pepper, and some greek olive. I've never made any flavored hummus before and I'm not sure about a couple of things...
1. How much of the other ingredients to add
2. Should I finely chop then stir in, or puree with the hummus?
I do plan to make a little well in the top of each serving bowl, fill with olive oil, then top with finely chopped peppers/olives (respectively). For reference with quantities, my normal hummus recipe calls for 1 can of chickpeas, 1/4 cup liquid from can, 2 tbsp olive oil, 3 tbsp lemon juice, heaping tbsp tahini, and spices. I'll probably double the recipe then divide it into thirds for the 3 flavors.
TIA for any replies! :)
