Equipment

  • Immersion blender

Ingredients

  • 2 cans chickpeas (standard 14 oz / 400g tins) reserve the liquid!
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil regular or extra virgin
  • cup tahini equals 8 tbsp

  • 1 tsp salt or more to taste
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp paprika powder

Instructions

  • Rinse and drain chickpeas.
  • Add all your ingredients to a large bowl.
  • Start the immersion blender at low speed. Move the blender around the bowl slowly. Gradually increase to the highest speed.

  • To serve, drizzle the hummus with olive oil and top off with chickpeas or sesame seeds*

Notes

You can also make this recipe in a regular blender or food processor.
Accidentally threw away your aquafaba? Just use water instead.
Tip 1 - Hand blenders aren't as powerful. Be patient and keep blending until smooth (usually takes about 5 minutes of blending).
Tip 2 - Peel the chickpeas for more creaminess.
Tip 3 - Melow the garlic by soaking it in lemon juice before adding to the bowl.
Too grainy? Keep blending! If it doesn't work, add more oil.
Too dry? Add more liquids - oil, lemon juice, aquafaba, or water (or a combination of them all).
Too runny? Add more tahini or let sit in the fridge for a few hours.
Storing - keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.
Freezing - place it in an airtight, freezer-safe container. Freeze it as soon as possible. 
Want your hummus oil-free? Leave out the oil and substitute it for aquafaba or water.
