The method of cooking the chickpeas with baking soda was found on food 52 How to make perfectly smooth Hummus. I modified his recipe for our taste buds! You can add what ever you like to taste.
1 1/4 cups dried chickpeas
1 teaspoon baking soda
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
You will need regular kitchen tools along with a food processor.
The roasted garlic has a much milder flavor than the fresh crushed garlic. Hummus goes with so many different things. I have made hummus with Craisins and it was very good! I have used this recipe using canned chickpeas and will explain the method later.
