To develop a hummus recipe with a light, silky-smooth texture and a flavor profile that would balance chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil, we emulsified the chickpeas and oil in the food processor.

Makes about 2 cups

We recommend Joyva or Krinos tahini and Pastene chickpeas (see related tastings). The hummus can be refrigerated in an airtight container for 5 days. If you do not plan on serving it immediately, refrigerate the hummus and garnishes separately. When ready to serve, stir in approximately 1 tablespoon of warm water if the texture is too thick.
