Homemade Hummus Recipe

 

What you need to make this Hummus Recipe:

 

 

Hummus Recipe:

 

Ingredients:

1 Bag Dry Chick Peas

1 Head of Garlic

14 OZ Tahini Sauce

1/3 Cup Olive Oil + extra for serving

Juice of 1-2 Lemons

Pinch of Cumin

Sea Salt to taste

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

 

Directions:

Soak chickpeas overnight, or follow the directions to quick soak them on the back of the package.

Once they are done soaking, drain the chickpeas and throw them into a large pan with baking soda and stir them around on medium-high heat for 3 minutes.

Cover the chickpeas with water, and a pinch of salt. Use the hand strainer to skim off the husks of the chickpeas and any foam that comes to the top.

Cook the chickpeas for 20-60 minutes until the peas are tender and crush apart when pressed between your thumb and a counter.

Strain the chickpeas and rinse under cold water. Return to the pan and cover with water. Gentle rub the chickpeas between your hands to release any stuck on husks. Skim off any husks that rise to the surface and drain again. Set them aside and allow them to cool thoroughly.

In the food processor mix combine the lemon juice and the whole bulb of garlic. Break the garlic apart but don’t bother peeling it. Add a splash of water and blend thoroughly. Once finished pour through a strainer and press as much of the liquid out as possible. Once finished, discard what’s left of the garlic cloves.

In a small-medium size, bowl combine the tahini sauce with the lemon juice mixture and stir until it becomes a paste. Add a splash of water at a time until it reaches the consistency of a thick batter. Add a pinch of cumin.

Combine the tahini mixture with the chickpeas (reserve some chickpeas to top it with), add the olive oil to the top, and blend until smooth.

Salt the hummus to taste, pour into a serving vessel, and top with a splash of good olive oil and the reserved chickpeas.
