Notes & tips

Amounts of ingredients are average and depends on the quality of ingredients, age of chickpeas. You need to taste the hummus and adjust the amounts every time.

The easiest way to peel garlic is to smash it: put a clove of garlic on a cutting board, put your chef’s knife on top of it so the blade side lays on the clove, and hit the side of the knife with your hand. Now you could peel the clove.
