I made hummus for the first time last night! I'm pretty particular when it comes to hummus, and I don't like most grocery store ones. I have been getting mine from a Kosher deli a few towns away...until now!
I halved the garlic (1.5 cloves), but I think 1 clove may be good for next time (I am a garlic lover also, but it was a little overpowering, since it is raw garlic). Didn't add the peppers, but added a few pinches of paprika and some olive oil.
After blending in the food processor, I felt like the hummus was still chunky and it had a "beans" aftertaste. I was kind of disappointed and decided to just put it in the fridge overnight. But when I tried it today, like some other reviewer said, the flavors blend together when in the fridge, and there was no "bean" taste.
I'm glad I didn't call it a wash after my first taste!
