Instructions

  1. Drain and rinse cooked chickpeas.
  2. Add all ingredients, except salt and pepper, to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Stop the blender and scrape the bowl a couple of times during the process to ensure a smooth texture.
  4. The hummus will be thick, creamy and smooth. If you prefer a thinner, add a bit more water until you reach desired consistency.
