Prep Notes

I don´t like chickpeas but I love hummus...... yes, I know, it does not make sense but it is what it is. It is a great appetizer and very nutritious. Most people buy it in the supermarket

but it is easy to make, tastes way betterand is more affordable so is worthy giving it a try! This a classic recipe, I´ve just made a small change, instead of using raw garlic I fry it,

it adds amazing flavor and is easier to digest. You can cook your own chickpeas but the canned ones are good and this way is quicker!

I am giving you the ingredients but play with the amounts as everyone likes it different.

Get ready some toasted pita bread or some raw veggies and start dipping!!

  1. Add a bit of oil and the garlic cloves in a small saucepan, heat over medium-low until soft and brown.
