I think hummus is an individual thing so the amounts you’d like to use of the ingredients might vary. Also I like to leave mine a bit chunky, but you can make yours smoother if you desire.
Hummus is great with bread, vegetables, and sandwiches.
The technique with the potato masher is shown in our Mixed Meze Plate Video.
300 g cooked chickpeas
2 cloves garlic, crushed
4 tablespoons tahini
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup broth from homemade chickpeas, or fresh water if using canned
2 tablespoons olive oil
Mash chickpeas with potato masher or process in food processor until desired consistency is reached. Add garlic, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, and enough broth/ water for your preferred thickness. Stir and serve.
