Our kitchen tips

  • Do not use canned beans. Soak and cook your chickpeas, and cook till they are very soft.
  • While mashing the chickpeas, use the water used for boiling the chickpeas instead of plain water. A flavour booster!
  • Peel the chickpeas to avoid the peels showing here and there in the finished hummus. This will also give a silky; cream like texture.
