Hummus - smooth and wonderful!
I just found out today how to make smooth hummus. After you have drained and rinsed well the canned beans, put them in a towel. Cover and roll gently to remove the skins. I had to do a lot by hand since this didn't totally work. Let me tell you though, it made the smoothest hummus. This recipe is so far the best I've found online. Always make sure to use a good quality olive oil and don't skip the tahini when making this. Here's the recipe;)
15 oz can chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed well
1/4 cup tahini (which is sesame paste)
1/4 olive oil
1/4 cup water
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 - 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice - to taste
1 pinch cumin
Blend all ingredients together in food processor or blender till smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste. Refrigerate for a couple hours and serve.
