Another truth is that there is no single hummus recipe and the ingrediants are based on your tastebuds.
Since I didn't want this dip to detract from the main event, I created a mild hummus based on the following:
- Using a food processor, combine half the chickpeas with half of the softened yams
- Add lemon juice and olive oil to thin it out
- Add spices sparingly
- Taste test
- Repeat until you have the desired volume, flavor and texture
- Puree further - optional (I wanted mine smooth)
