Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients
Add the soaked chickpeas with their water into the saucepan over high heat. Then, add a little more water and cook for an hour. Once cooked, the chickpeas should be plump and soft. Drain and rinse well.
Step 2: Make Hummus Paste
In a food processor, combine the cooked chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, water, olive oil, and salt. Puree until it becomes a fairly smooth paste.
Step 3: Season And Serve
Place a spoonful of Hummus onto a serving plate. Sprinkle with paprika, toasted pine nuts, and chopped parsley. Serve the Hummus with pita bread. Your hummus is now ready.
