Ottolenghi Hummus

Homemade hummus is fresh, light and delicious. I used canned chickpeas for this recipe, which originally has dried chickpeas. Enjoy!


1 can organic chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup of organic tahini
4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 cloves garlic, crushed
6 tablespoons ice cold water (more depending on the thickness of your tahini)
1-2 pinch salt, to taste
Extra virgin olive oil

Drain the chickpeas. Place the chickpeas in a food processor and process until you get a stiff paste. Add the tahini paste, lemon juice, garlic, and salt. Add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time to get proper consistency. Allow it to mix for about five minutes, until it is smooth and creamy. Place in a bowl with plastic wrap touching the hummus, rest for about 30 min. Use the end of a spoon to make lines in the hummus and then pour extra virgin olive oil. Serve with yogurt infused flatbread.
