This fluffy dip, based on the author’s travels in Israel, has a creamy, nutty flavor unlike anything you’ll find in a grocery store. Serve with pita, cucumbers, peppers, or carrots.

The best hummus I have ever had. I make this at parties often and people just go nuts for it. It disappears.
Because there isn't as much lemon juice, tahini, or olive oil in this recipe compared to other hummus recipes, the chickpea flavor really dominates. Therefore, the quality of this recipe comes down to the dried chickpeas you use. I use Palouse Brand (you can buy on Amazon).
The variant of this with almonds and harissa is amazing.
I make a batch for the household and stir in the harissa for a little kick...this has become the replacement for mayonnaise for my wife and I when making wraps and sandwiches.
I can't go back to store bought hummus now.
If doubling this recipe, do you need to double the amount of water?
I cheat and use Goya chick peas. The recipe is fantastic and so light and creamy! Highly recommend - easy to make.
Interesting reading the other reviews. It was more work, but easily the best hummus I've ever had and everyone loved it. Grocery store hummus has lost all appeal!
