The key to making really creamy hummus has not a lot to do with oil and a whole lot to do with chickpea flour!


3/4 Cup Chickpea flour
2 1/2 Cups water
3 cloves garlic
1/4 Cup water or stock for blending
1/4 Cup Tahini
1 lemon, juice only
1/4 Cup olive oil
Pinch of ground cumin
Pinch of salt and pepper
Dash of hot sauce


1) Start by bringing the larger amount of water to a simmer in a pan.  Slowly add in the chickpea flour, whisking the whole time.

2) Continue stirring/whisking on low until the the chickpea flour mixture is thick, about 8-10 minutes.

3) Combine chickpea paste with other ingredients except stock/water and oil and process in food processor until smooth.

4) Drizzle in oil and water/stock and continue to process until combined well and smooth.

5) Serve right away with toppings of your choice or store in a plastic container with a drizzle of olive oil on top.
