This is how you make the perfect light and fluffy hummus every time! Simple ingredients, super easy method and perfectly delicious end results every time.
Ready in: 10minutes
1(15 oz can) chickpeas / garbanzo beans,drained liquid reserved
2 - 4Tbspliquid from can of chickpeas
2 1/2Tbspfresh lemon juice
2Tbspextra virgin olive oil,plus more for serving if desired
1medium garlic clove
Add chickpeas, 2 Tbsp liquid from chickpea can, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and cumin to a food processor.
Season with salt to taste (I usually use 1/2 tsp), then process for 5 minutes until smooth and fluffy, while adding additional reserved liquid to thin as needed (note that it will thicken once chilled).
If desired, plate then swirl in center and add more olive oil, sprinkle with paprika.
Store in refrigerator in an airtight container up to 1 week.
Watch out for rancid tahini. If it's gone bad it will have a strong, sharp unpleasant flavor and can ruin the hummus.
This is the perfect ratio in my opinion, but if you like a little more tahini or garlic feel free to add some for a strong flavor.
