don't buy hummus, really. It's worlds better when you make it yourself, and your effort is nothing more than plopping things into a food processor and walking away. Warning: if you make it for people, it will likely become a thing. ("oh, and can you bring your velvet hummus??")
"You can find tahini almost everywhere, usually by the nut butters, as it's a blend of sesame seeds. The tahini makes it real."
Notes: Pine nuts are toasted in a dry pan for 3 minutes.
Ingredients: 1 can drained chic peas (garbanzo beans), 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup tahini, 2 cloves peeled garlic, 1 tsp. sea salt, dried parsley
1. Place all ingredients into a food processor and process for 10 minutes. Scrape down the sides ever so often. The longer it processes the silkier it will be.
2. Serve by making a shallow swirl with the back of a spoon on the surface, and filling it in with olive oil. Sprinkle over pine nuts and dried parsley.
Tip: Store in air-tight container up to a week.
