Directions

Add ½ teaspoon salt and cook for 10-15 more min, or until the chickpeas are completely soft. Drain the chickpeas, saving the liquid. In a food processor, process 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of pepper and 3 cloves garlic. Process until garlic is pureed and then add the lemon juice and process again to mix. Add the chickpeas, about ¼ cup of the chickpea liquid, tahini, cumin and ½ cup oil to the food processor and process. Add the rest of the oil and salt until rich and creamy. Scrape hummus into a bowl and serve.
