This is my favourite hummus! My dad has always made this as long as I can remember and I’ve adapted it only slightly. He taught me to cook, and is a rad guy who looks like a big bear with the face of a kind golden retriever.
1 big Can of good chickpeas, drained with liquid reserved
1/2 c. Tahini
Zest and juice of of 1/2 a lemon
4 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
A few glues of good olive oil
Salt and pepper
Put everything except for the bean water in a food processor and blend until mostly broken down. While the machine is running, slowly add liquid until the mixture begins to smooth out (half of the liquid usually).
All done! Season to taste with salt and pepper and garnish with a bit more paprika and a drizzle of oil.
I know it might seem gross to ise the beam liquid or like it would make you gassy but I’ve been eating this for 20+ years and I’m feeling fine.
