No, that’s not a typo. I made hummus in the microwave and it was amazing.
I’ve made hummus before and I’ve never in my life seen a microwave used. But now I’m a believer.
This hummus is perfect for several reasons:
It makes an amazing lunch or snack.
It only requires six, SIX, ingredients.
Here’s how you make it:
Place a can of chickpeas (including the liquid) plus a few cloves of garlic (I used four) in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for about 5 minutes.
In your food processor, combine the chickpeas, garlic, about 1/2 cup tahini, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (the recipe called for lemon juice, but I didn’t have any so I picked another acid). Whirl and drizzle in 1 tablespoon on EVOO. Scrape the sides and whirl again.
I popped mine in the fridge for a little bit and then topped it with a sprinkle of paprika for a little extra color and smokiness.
Ta-Da! Microwave hummus!!!
