I made this Hummus and used 4 cups of dried Chickpea's. I cooked them in a crock pot with water for about 3 hours. My biggest problem was I made way too much, 2 cups would have been plenty. My blender about choked! I added Tahini, lemon juice, salt, olive oil, 3 heads of roasted garlic, cumin, 4 cups water. I then added 1 habanero to half the batch. Pretty tasty!
Thank you :) --DK
Oh yes. You def. can. Add the chickpeas in a saucepan and cover it with enough water (abt 2 inches above the chickpeas). Add the garlic cloves along with Bay leaves and bring to boil. Then simmer it in low-medium heat for about 45 minutes or until tender. The follow the rest of the steps. --DK
Oh wow! You made this already? Awesome, thank you so much for the feedback. --DK
Yes, Since I am doing the recipe requests last few months, you will find the most common/popular/basic/day-to-day dishes for few more weeks. Now that I am hard pressed to experiment new stuff as much, I am sticking to my everyday recipes for posting :) Loads of thanks to patient readers like you :) --DK
Adding Labneh or greek yogurt (i use fat free) makes this even more smoother and velvety not to speak of adding even more protein. Very filling and satisfying snack in my house...we love it :) --DK
