Step 1
Peel and slice up the Garlic (1 clove) . Add it to a non-stick pan with some good quality Olive Oil (to taste) .
Step 2
Place the pan over medium heat and let the garlic gently fry for 4 minutes. Then add Canned Chickpeas (1 cup) .
Step 3
Stir and take the pan off the heat. Let the garlic and chickpeas cool for a couple of minutes. Then pour it all in a clean blender.
Step 4
Pulse the chickpeas for 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides and pulse again. Then add Fresh Cilantro (1 handful) , Lemon Juice (1 Tbsp) , and half of the Sesame Oil (1 Tbsp) .
Step 5
Pulse again for 2 minutes. Add about 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil (to taste) and 2 tablespoons of water. Season with Salt (to taste) , Ground Black Pepper (to taste) and Ground Cumin (to taste) .
Step 6
Pulse the chickpeas again for a while until that greenish color takes over the beige chickpea color (takes a couple of minutes). Then add extra Olive Oil (to taste) or water, pulse again until you get the consistency you like.
Step 7
Scoop the hummus in a clean bowl, cover with some cling film and let it chill and set in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Step 8
Then let it rest again at room temperature 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
