The Secret Ingredient In Delicious, Creamy Hummus
Without the insanity that is peeling chickpeas.
Make this instead.
The "secret" to most creamy hummus recipes is to peel the chickpeas. Please.
1. This is the better way. You will need chickpeas (dried or canned), garlic, lemon, tahini, and the magic ingredient: baking soda.
2. If you're using dried chickpeas, give 'em a soak overnight. If you're not that patient, use canned beans and skip to the next step.
3. Put a pan over medium heat. Add the dried chickpeas and the baking soda.
4. Add water and bring it to a boil. Boil your chickpeas until they're very tender and ALMOST mushy, but not quite.
Congratulations! Because you added magical baking soda, you only have to boil your chickpeas for 20 to 40 minutes.
Without the baking soda, it takes 90 minutes. Please.
