If you don't love hummus, perhaps it is because you haven't had good, homemade hummus. Now is your chance!
If you find the chickpea (garbanzo) measurements annoying, I'm sorry. This recipe has been customized for one of my pots and my food processor size (7c).
1 1/8c Dried Chickpeas (equiv of 1.5 cans)
1/4c Tahini (I hear you can use Peanut Butter in a pinch)
3 Garlic Cloves, chopped/minced
1/2c Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed
2T Olive Oil
2T Dried Parsley
1/2t Crushed Red Pepper
1/2t Black Pepper
1 1/2 - 2t Salt
Cover chickpeas with water and simmer until tender (approx 90 minutes). Drain, reserving a bit of liquid. Place all ingredients in food processor and puree. Add reserved liquid to achieve desired consistency.
