Notes

This recipe is very easy to modify based on personal preferences.
Other than the chickpeas and tahini, feel free to add or subtract amounts of the ingredients to suit what you like.
* Tahini paste is a condiment made from toasted sesame seeds and oil. It's a staple in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cooking.
Stored in an airtight container this hummus will keep for 4 - 7 days any longer than that and you run the risk of the garlic going off.
Store it in airtight containers, pour a thin layer of olive oil over the top of the hummus to preserve moisture, then freeze for up to 4 months. Allow it to thaw in the fridge overnight. No need to reheat this recipe, once it’s thawed stir it up and serve!
