  1. Mash chickpeas, 2 tablespoons reserved chickpea liquid, tahini, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder together in a bowl using a potato masher, adding more reserved liquid if desired, until hummus is desired consistency, 50 to 100 strokes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Your potato masher needs to have enough surface area on its business end to crush the chickpeas. Rest the bowl or pot on a cutting board or towel to protect your counter or work surface. Don't use a non-stick pot because you'd probably damage its surface. The recipe can be doubled.
  • Variation: Substitute cayenne, to taste, for the crushed red pepper flakes.
