Super-Fast Hummus!

Did you know that the key to creamy, rich hummus is to use peeled chickpeas? Shout out to the innovative team at Melissa’s Produce! Their peeled and steamed chickpeas are a perfect choice. I used them right out of the package, and the hummus came together in minutes.

Here’s my recipe:

Garlicky Spicy Chickpea Hummus

Serves 4

1 pkg. (9 oz.) Melissa’s Peeled & Steamed Chickpeas

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, more for drizzling

3 cloves garlic, crushed

3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice

2 Tbs. tahini

Sea salt

2 Tbs. favorite harissa

1 tsp. minced fresh parsley

Add the chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, 2 Tbs. water, and ¾ tsp. salt to a food processor. Process until the mixture becomes a very smooth paste. Transfer to a medium bowl, top with harissa, a drizzle of olive oil, and the parsley.
