We'd never been able to make a really smooth hummus and supposedly peeling the chick peas does the trick.
I tried it out and we definitely noticed a big difference. Our guests loved the final product! And so did we.
- 1 can chick peas (garbanzo beans)
- 2 teaspoons berbere spice (or more, to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1/2 cup olive oil (or more... we didn't measure it)
In a food processor, combine the chick peas, berbere, pepper, lemon juice, garlic, tahini, and 1/4 cup olive oil. Pulse until well combined.
