Hummus without Tahini
Make creamy hummus without tahini using dried chickpeas.
- 1 pound dried chickpeas
- 4 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 3/4 tbsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 garlic clove minced
Soak the chickpeas, covered by 2 inches of water, for at least 8 hours. Or perform a quick soak by boiling the chickpeas for 5 minutes then turning off the heat and soaking for 1 hour. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
Return the chickpeas to a pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 1 hour, until the beans are very soft.
Drain the chickpeas and place in a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth and adjust the seasoning to taste.
