Hummus is one of my favorite foods! I like to make it from scratch but I don't make it very often because I prefer to peel the skins which takes extra time and I forget to pre-soak the chickpeas. I have searched a long time for easier ways to make hummus the way I like it and FINALLY . . . I have a new method that I am excited to share with you and some different serving ideas. Would a 40 minute cooking time interest you? Let's make some delicious creamy (from scratch hummus)!
Step 1: Ingredients
1 1/4 cups dried chickpeas
6 1/2 cups water
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons tahini (light roast)
4- 8 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice organic is best! I love lemon so I use a lot! I wonder if Meyers lemons would work for this? Yum!
Season to taste with roasted garlic or use 4 cloves crushed garlic
6 1/2 tablespoons ice cold water
Parsley or mint for garnish
Olive oil garnish
Lemon zest garnish
