Actually, you should be peeling your chickpeas to obtain the creamiest hummus possible. :P

Yuppers! Peel your chickpeas. It makes for a creamier hummus and it's easier to digest.


This sounds like it would take a really, really long time. Tell me I'm wrong?


Eh, it's not so bad once you get into the groove. They just slip out.

if you boil them for a few minutes it loosens the skins.

I also use a blender since I don't have a food processor.

After thinking about this for a while, I'm really motivated to try and make the best hummus ever with peeled chickpeas and a mortar and pestle. I should definitely use cooked from dry beans, so does anybody have any tips on cooking them? Mine often come out kind of tough and hard.


cooking in a pressure cooker will help

Do it in batches! Pour a small amount onto a clean tea towel and rub them gently between your hands. The skins should slide right off and you just pick them out.

I just soak mine overnight, drain, then boil them in water on low, covered for 2-3 hours. Mine have never come out tough...

Also, I mash mine with the beater from a hand-mixer when I am too lazy to use the food processor or when I'm making a small batch.
