I doubt many vegans need to be told how to make hummus. I usually don't make my own, but most of the storebought brands seem to have added salt and such in them, plus I had just made a giant pot of chickpeas, so I tried this out. In my food processor I blended about 3 Tbsp tahini with the juice of one lemon, blending until it was frothy and completely mixed together. Then I added 3 cloves of garlic (probably too much) and blended them in, adding the chickpeas in handful by handful. I used what would maybe be equal to 3/4 of a can.When it was all blended, I scooped it into a bowl, sprinkled some dill on top, and used it as a dip for sliced peppers and celery. A pretty good snack.
