- 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, no salt added, reserve the chickpea water to control the consistency of the hummus
- 1 clove fresh garlic, peeled, minced, you can add more if you prefer
- 1 teaspoon tahini, amount to taste, you can add more if you like the flavor
- 1 tablespoon olive oil, extra virgin, plus more to drizzle on top for serving
- 1/4 tsp Kosher salt, amount to taste
- 1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper, amount to taste
- 2 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds, optional, amount to taste
- Drain the chickpeas and save the canning liquid (see the video of how I do this).
- In a food processor, add chickpeas, fresh minced garlic, tahini, 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt and pulse. Slowly add in the chickpea water, pulsing in between to get the right consistency. Scrap down the sides of the food processor, if you need to.
- Transfer into a serving bowl and drizzle with olive oil, more salt, if you wish and fresh ground pepper, to taste. Optionally, sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds. Enjoy, with your favorite tortilla chips or bread!
