Try this, and I promise you will prefer it!
Ok so the ONLY possible issue with this recipe is that you have to PEEL THE CHICKPEAS. Crazy, right? What peel? Ohhhhh…that translucent tiny little skin that slides off when you squeeze the bean? Yeah, THAT.
It makes the hummus silky smooth. Don’t skip this step!

Prep time: 30 mins Total time: 30 mins
2 cans chickpeas
1 clove garlic
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
up to ½ cup water
½ teaspoon salt
Remove the skins from the chickpeas by gently pinching them until the skin comes off. Discard the skins and reserve the chickpeas.
Place de-skinned chickpeas in a blender or food processor with garlic, olive oil, ¼ cup water, and salt. Blend or puree until very smooth, adding the remaining water one tablespoon at a time if the mixture is too sticky to move through the blender. Once the mixture is going, you can stream in a little bit more olive oil to help achieve a super creamy texture.
