Making the hummus

  1. Into the bowl of a food processer place chickpea liquid, olive oil, tahini and lemon juice along with the two cloves of roasted garlic, blitz until smooth. Doing this step before adding the chickpeas insures the garlic is finely chopped and the other ingredients combine to a thick sauce.
  2. Now add the chickpeas and blend for a minute, at this rate the hummus won’t be all that smooth, the crispy bits on the chickpeas leave a little graininess, so they need some time to soak, let them sit 5-10 minutes. Blend the hummus till silky smooth, add more liquid if you want it looser and adjust seasoning to taste. Serve with fresh veggies or pita.
