    im Lebanese, so id say my hummus is pretty darn good.

    one large can chickpeas (1 pound) (and a bit extra incase your hummus turns out watery)
    1/2 cup warm water, and extra just in case
    3 small garlic cloves
    1/2 teaspoon or so salt (depends on preferences, you should taste as you add on!)
    8 tablespoons tahini (sesame "butter" )
    1/2 cup lemon juice or so (again, adjust to your own preferences whether you like hummus a bit sour or not )

    directions:
    wash the chickpeas well, and then put in food processor, with 1/4 cup water. blend, and as its blending add the tahini, salt, garlic, and HALF the lemon juice. blend well until smooth.taste, then add more lemon juice accordingly to taste. if the hummus is too watery, you need more chickpeas, if its bland, add lemon juice, DONT ADD MORE GARLIC, you'll kill the people around you with your mouth (LOL) when storing/serving it, drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top with paprika too if you want

    That sounds so good! What is the shelf life like? I mean I can usually rip through a tub of hummus in a few days, but just in case. :)

    to tell you the truth, i have no idea. my mom usually goes and buys the tahini.. but it depends on the store. it could be in the ethnic foods aisle, or beside the rice/grains. sorry im not much help |:
    oh, and if your near a middle eastern grocery store, go there (way better) since you can buy FRESH tahini in the refrigerator section.

    ohhh OOPS, disregard my gibber jabber on top, i completely misread this post (sorry! not enough sleep!) if you put it in an air tight container, probably a week or so

    im middle eastern too so we eat this a lot [ofc with a vegan brother it doesnt last long] but it can only last like a few days i say no more than a week though. but it also depends if you buy canned hummus or make it from scratch [and i mean with the tahini too]

    is, hands down, the best hummus I've ever had in my life. I've gotten about 8 people hooked on this recipe. If you make it, be prepared to be obsessed.
