Authentic Hummus Mastery: The Real Deal from Scratch

Floral Frame

Ingredient

– Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) – Tahini (sesame paste) – Fresh lemon juice – Garlic clove – Ground cumin – Extra-virgin olive oil – Salt and pepper to taste – Water (for adjusting consistency)

Instruction

Cook the Chickpeas: Start with dried chickpeas for authenticity. Soak them overnight, then cook until tender. Alternatively, you can use canned chickpeas, ensuring they are well-drained and rinsed. Peel the Chickpeas (Optional): For an exceptionally smooth texture, consider peeling the chickpeas by gently squeezing them between your fingers. This step is optional but enhances creaminess. Create the Base: In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, tahini, fresh lemon juice, garlic cloves, ground cumin, a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Blend Until Silky: Process the mixture until it becomes a silky-smooth paste. Scrape down the sides of the food processor as needed for an even blend.
