There are very few things that my husband knows how to cook. He makes a mean grilled cheese (my yearly birthday dinner), and while we were dating, I discovered he made amazing hummus- silky smooth, and very flavorful. We have been married 6 years now, and while I do 99.5% of the cooking for the family, he covers the hummus. He makes a batch of it weekly for us to slather on toast or eat with veggies, it’s his thing, and I’m sure glad it is!
He uses the Blendtec twister jar to make our hummus- I think it really contributes to how smooth his hummus is, but if you don’t have a Blendtec, make sure you periodically stop the blender and scrape down the sides to get it as smooth as you can.
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp Tahini
1 clove garlic
½ tsp kosher salt
12 oz can Chickpeas
1/3 cup liquid from the chickpeas can reserved
Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy, and then refrigerate. Will last at least 1 week in the fridge.
