garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
fresh lemon juice
olive oil, or more to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons
tahini (sesame seed paste)
garlic, minced, or more to taste
I had to make several changes after I got started. I used two 15 oz cans of chickpeas. I couldn't see having 1/2 cup left over (2 cups was 1-1/2 cans). I ended up using 3 tablespoons sesame butter (asian style with a little heat), 1/3 cup olive oil and 1-1/2 large lemons (came to 7 tablespoons). I sprinkled with a little cayenne for a little added kick and really upped the garlic just for my own taste. I feel if I had made this as written, it would not have been smooth enough for my taste. Made the way I made it, I would give it 5 stars, thought it was awesome. I feel it needs more oil than the recipe stated, but it could just be personal preference in liking a less chunky hummus.
Great basic recipe. Add more or less garlic to taste.
