We’re Adam and Joanne from inspiredtaste.net and welcome to our kitchen.
Today we’re showing you how to make an extra smooth hummus.
It’s really easy
You’re gonna start with tahini which is a creamy sesame paste.
Just give it a stir and measure out about a quarter of a cup…
then add it to a food processor or blender.
Next you’ll need some lemon juice, we
like to use about a quarter of a cup…
you could use a little less or a little
more depending on your taste.
Add the lemon juice to the tahini, use the strainer to make sure no seeds get through.

Now process for about one minute…
the tahini and lemon juice cream together and become thick, whipped and creamy…

that’s the secret too creamy hummus.
Now for some flavor…
we like to use about a half a clove of
garlic..
but we peel and mince it fine first…
that way we help out the processor…
and that way no one bites into a big piece of garlic.
Next, two tablespoons of olive oil…
about half a teaspoon of ground cumin
and some salt, start with half a teaspoon
and then taste later and add as you need it.
Just scrape the bottom of the bowl…
and process again.
After about a minute
open up the lid and scrape again…
and continue to process.
This all helps to make extra smooth creamy hummus.
Now for the chickpeas…
We use one can…
but we drain and rinse it first
Add about half of the chickpeas to
the food processor…
and process for another minute…
then add the remaining chickpeas.
Now process for one to two minutes…
until extra smooth.
Go ahead and scrape the bowl again
and now to make things…
really really smooth.
And just like the hummus you buy at the store we like to add two to three tablespoons of water.

This just thins it out a little bit…
you can add as much or as little as you
want.
As you add the water you can literally
see it get smoother and smoother.
Give it a test…
Add it to a plate and top it with olive oil or paprika. Enjoy!
