So, let's go to the step-by-step guide on how to make this delightful treat.
Prepare Chickpeas: Start by draining a can of chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans. Save the liquid from the can; we'll use it later in the recipe.
Blend Chickpeas and Garlic: Combine the drained chickpeas and two cloves of garlic in a food processor or blender (the Nutribullet works great). Blend until you get a coarse mixture.
Add Tahini and Olive Oil: Add one tablespoon of tahini and 1/3 cup of olive oil to the chickpea mixture. Blend again until the ingredients are well combined, and the mixture becomes smoother.
Squeeze in Lemon Juice: Add freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste. The lemon juice adds a zesty kick to the hummus, so feel free to adjust the quantity based on your preference.
Adjust Consistency: At this point, incorporate the reserved water from the chickpeas a little at a time until you achieve your desired consistency. The water helps make the hummus creamier.
Season with Cumin: Sprinkle in a pinch of cumin powder, or add cumin seeds for a subtle, earthy flavor. Blend once more to ensure all the ingredients are well-mixed.
Garnish and Serve: Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl. Garnish with a sprinkle of chili powder, paprika, and fresh parsley (if available).
Enjoy: Your homemade hummus is now ready to be enjoyed! Serve it with pita bread or vegetable sticks, or use it as a flavorful spread.
