Hummus - Clean Eating and Kid Friendly
½cup chickpea water
3tbsp. lemon juice
3 garlic cloves minced
2tbsp. olive oil
I like to use dried chickpeas because the tinned ones have a lot of sugar in the water, you can use either if you use the dried ones make sure to soak them overnight. If you are using tinned chickpeas, drain the water and put them in clean water.
Put chickpeas into a saucepan and cover with water, and then bring to the boil
Cook for approximately 2 hours at a simmer or until the chickpeas have softened*
Take them off the heat and allow the chickpeas to cool in the water
Once cooled, strain the chickpeas but keep about 1cup of the water the chickpeas were cooked in.
Add all of the chickpeas to a food processor and pulse; you should get a chunky texture. If you don't have a food processor, you can use a potato masher to mash the chickpeas.
Add in lemon juice, garlic, oil, and salt then pulse again.
To get your hummus to the desired texture pour in small amounts of the chickpea water.
Pulse until you reach your desired consistency then serve with some olive oil on to
