(Without Getting Crazy)
1. Obtain a tin sack of garbanzo beans, too known equally chickpeas. You tin sack start amongst dried chickpeas if yous genuinely wishing to live an overachiever, but Alton Brown says that starting amongst dried garbanzos is genuinely the grade of practiced falafel. He never said anything nigh hummus. And Alton Brown knows everything.
I should receive got a minute to address the resultant of “Can it live hummus without garbanzo beans?” As hummus agency garbanzo bean, my gut tells me NO. People volition disagree. [I, inwards fact, had a 10-minute struggle amongst a coworker nigh this.] I beloved a practiced white edible bean equally much equally the adjacent immature lady (at to the lowest degree ane without GI issues) but if yous purpose a unlike bean…call it edible bean dip.
3. Into the nutrient processor locomote the beans! Then, add together lemon juice, salt, 2-3 cloves of garlic (minced) [if you’re fancy [slash] doing the “overachieving thing” as well as receive got roasted garlic, well…PLEASE purpose that]. H5N1 lilliputian paprika or cumin added hither tin sack live quite nice…just for a lilliputian extra exceptional spice.
5. After all of those flavorings, procedure away! Scrape the sides ane time or twice [make certain the nutrient processor is turned off] as well as hand off going until everything is pretty good incorporated.
That’s pretty much it. I mean, ane time you’ve mastered the basic recipe yous tin sack mess around as well as larn crazy amongst your seasoning as well as additions as well as flavored hummi [plural grade of hummus…maybe]. Good luck…and may garbanzo live amongst you.
