For those of you who know me, you know that I am a hummus connoisseur.
Boy, do I love hummus. (Understatement of the year)
So when I found out I could make my own hummus at home, quickly, easily, and way more cost efficiently, I couldn’t wait.
What you’ll need:
- 1 pound dried garbonzo beans, rinsed
- 12 cups water
- Instant Pot
- Food processor
- 1/2 cup warm bean cooking liquid
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
What you’ll do:
Rinse beans and discard any stones. Place in Instant Pot along with 12 cups of water. Close lid, make sure steam vent is sealed and set to Manual for 35 minutes.When done, allow Instant Pot to naturally release.
After steam is released drain beans and reserve 1/2 cup of warm bean cooking liquid. Place the remaining ingredients except olive oil into food processor. Set to mix and add olive oil a teaspoon at a time. Blend until creamy and smooth. If you’re feeling fancy, you can add your own flavor to your hummus. I love to add hot pepper flakes and Chipotle Chili Powder. Serve warm. Store rest in airtight container and refrigerate.
