I will make this again, but will cut the garlic more than I already did (and we love garlic!). I used 4-5 cloves and cooked them a little with skins on in a skillet, and that was still too garlicky. Next time I will try 3 cloves semi-cooked. It makes a lot, so I put some in the freezer -- am eager to see how it comes out.
the only hummus recipe i use!!! cut down to 4 garlic cloves. it's better if i chop the garlic before putting in my processor. my daughter even loves this one !!!!! i just eat it with a spoon sometimes !!!!
My go to recipe for hummus - good, quick and easy. I've tried a couple others and didn't like them. Great basic recipe for playing with. I usually double the garlic and often cook the garlic in the olive oil (30-40 min) in the toaster oven. I have also added roasted peppers, cilantro, 5-spice powder, and dip mixes that usually are hydrated with mayo, yogurt, or sour cream.
Not sure if 3 is enough but I hesitate to go higher since my neighbors recipe best this one, but since he won't tell me what he does I use this one reagularly.
I just whipped this up in no time flat in my mini food processor. I only had 1 15oz can of garbanzo beans so I had to half the recipe. I decreased the water to 1/3 cup but kept the rest of the ingredient measurements the same. I also used jarred minced garlic to taste. All I can say is that this is FABULOUS and I don't think I will ever buy hummus again. Thanks for a great recipe CL!
Maybe the perfect hummus recipe. I too am a garlic lover. The first time I made it, I used two cloves of garlic and didn't think it was enough. Today I used four - oof! Next time I'll use three. The great thing about this basic recipe is that you can add different things to it. I put in some basil from the garden. Delicious.
