This is an adaptation of a recipe I found. I made adjustments to eliminate chopping and blending. It makes for an easy, tasty, creamy hummus. Garnish the top with some olive oil, ground paprika, or fresh minced basil if you like.

  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook garlic powder in the hot oil until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pour in 1 1/2 cup water. Whisk in chickpea flour until smooth. Slowly whisk in remaining 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir until mixture thickens, about 15 minutes.

  • Scrape chickpea mixture into a large bowl using a rubber spatula. Add tahini mixture; whisk until well incorporated.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute 3 cloves minced garlic for the garlic powder if desired.

Serve hummus immediately or place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours to allow flavors to mingle.

We'd all love a blenderless hummus recipe. Alas this is not it. The problem is that the moment the chickpea flour touches the hot liquid it seizes up. No amount of whisking unclumped them. I thought about blending it anyway but i fear it was too late. Read More

Good taste strange texture. Be careful when adding the flour it might help to pass this through a mesh strainer to eliminate any lumps. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
