Chubby chickpea hummus

Hummus has quickly become America’s favorite game-time dip. In fact, last year it was the Super Bowl’s official dip. Why not? It’s creamy and smooth and has a really great garlicky flavor. Stir in some hot sauce or Cajun seasoning to kick it up.
Ingredients

– MAKES 2 SERVINGS.
– 4 cups (945 ml) water.
– 2 cups (508 g) canned chickpeas, rinsed.
– ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil.
– 2 tbsp (30 ml) tahini paste.
– 1 tsp (3 g) granu lated garlic.
– Pinch of salt.
– 1 tsp (5 ml) fresh lemon juice.
– 1 tsp (5 ml) olive oil.
– Pinch of paprika (optional).
– Crackers or bread for serving (optional).

Instructions

Step 1: In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the chickpeas and boil for 20 minutes. Once the chickpeas easily mush in your hand, they’re ready for hummus! In a food processor or in a blender on high speed, mix the chickpeas (still hot), the ¼ cup (60 ml) oil, the tahini, garlic, salt and lemon juice. Add a few drops of water at a time to help it all blend. Process or blend until creamy and smooth, which may take as long as 4 minutes. Put the hummus on a plate and if you want, drizzle with the 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of olive oil and sprinkle with paprika. Eat with your favorite crackers, bread or fingers.
