Garlic Hummus [Chickpea Pudding)

This is fantastic hummus! The secret sauce is in the liquid you’ll reserve from the can of chickpeas. That liquid, called ‘aquafaba’ makes this healthy dip extra smooth and creamy. Of course, you can always adjust the garlic, cumin, and chili powder. Maybe even a bit of cayenne. Mmmm… this is so good.

Ingredients ~

  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas*
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Method ~

*Drain chickpeas, reserving ¼ cup of the liquid.

Transfer the chickpeas and the reserved liquid to a food processor. Add tahini, oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, chili powder and salt. Puree until very smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.
