3 Pro Tips for that perfect silky smooth HUMMUS:
Soak minced garlic in lemon juice before mixing with the other ingredients. The flavour of the garlic will become more mild and perfect for hummus.
Use ice cubes when mixing the hummus. This will lower the temperature of the mixture and make the hummus hold together better.
Use a high-quality 100% raw sesame tahini. It should be light in colour and pourable, you will find the best ones in oriental supermarkets or health-food stores.
