Hummus Recipe

hummus recipe
Hummus is an inexpensive, high-fiber and protein-packed food, yet only a few home chefs dabble in this dip. This Middle Eastern mixture of chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, and tahini has endless possibilities, so there's no reason for hummus humdrum.

    Hi Mattie,
    It should be 1/3 c of liquid.

  • Mattie

    how much chickpea liquid do you add?

    I made this last night. Only I pressure cooked my dry garbanzo beans. Nothing better and it tastes so fresh. I added a couple dashes of red pepper for a kick.

    You will need to use 1/3 c

    If I don’t have canned chickpeas, what can I replace the reserved liquid with?
