I soaked the chick peas for about three days.
Saturday I boiled them for just over an hour.
Then I drained the pot, put the chick peas in the blender.
I added around 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 2/3 of a cup of water, 2 teaspoons of garlic powder (since I didn't have any fresh garlic cloves) and a few shakes of salt.
I blend these ingredients, had to stop a few times to move the mixture around since the blender wasn't as strong as the last one I had used. But eventually, my chick peas became smooth hummus.
I put the hummus into containers, left them open to cool.
Then put the lids on around 20 minutes later, and stuck them in the fridge.
It was my first time making hummus, and I tried it today. It wasn't great, tastes pretty watery instead of creamy and delicious. A friend of mine suggested mixing in a bit of peanut butter, since I am not a fan of tahini. I'm going to try that tonight!
Peace and serenity,
