<p>Seven ingredients, no cooking, no baking. And it literally takes no more than 10 minutes to make. We fell in love with hummus immediately a couple of years ago while trying out different foods from different countries. This is a basic hummus recipe, super easy to make. It's the base for many varieties. Some add cheese, paprika, others prefer more herbs or something completely different. Whatever it is, this hummus is made to be experimented with. Have fun in the kitchen and bon appetite. </p>
Rinse the chickpeas under running water. Add them to the food processor / blender. Peel the cloves of garlic, crush them and add them to the food processor as well. Also add the olive oil, zest of 1 lemon, juice of 1 lemon and 1 tablespoon of tahini. Blend for about five minutes.
Check the consistency. After a minute or two, add the water and sea salt. When the mixture is combined and it looks super smooth, transfer it to a bowl or a medium size jar. If you are going to serve it right away, drizzle the hummus with some olive oil, finely chopped parsley or coriander and/or pistachios.
