- 1 (14-ounce) can chickpeas
- 1 clove garlic, peeled
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- Salt, to taste
- Sesame Seeds, toasted
- Parsley, chopped, for garnish
Add the chickpeas to your blender. Add the garlic, sea salt, then add 1/2 cup water and lemon juice. Blend well and add more water if necessary.
Add the oil and blend one more time. The hummus will now get lighter in color and more creamy. Have a taste and add more lemon juice, salt or a splash of water to loosen, if needed. Transfer to a serving bowl.
Garnish with a good drizzle of extra virgin oil, chopped fresh parsley and tossed sesame seeds. Serve with sliced crunchy veg, toast or flat breads. Enjoy!
