My favorite go to hummus is one that highlights the chickpea and tahini flavors and is quick and easy. The key to a clean and delicious hummus is to use really good ingredients. Goya chickpeas, the star ingredient, is a great product with flavorful chickpeas and liquid and available at most grocery stores. For the other main ingredient, it's worth seeking out Soom Sesame Tahini, a brand easily found on Amazon. However, don't let these specific brands stop you- any brand of ingredients will still be better than store bought hummus, promise!
In a food processor, add the chickpeas and about 2 Tbsp of the reserved liquid and pulse till smooth. Stop a few times to scrape down the sides, adding more reserved chickpea liquid if needed.
Add the lemon juice, tahini, cumin, garlic powder and salt. Process until smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add more reserved chickpea liquid if needed.
Season to taste by adding more of any of the above ingredients until you have your desired taste preference. I often add another pinch of salt as well as another spoon of tahini.
To serve, scoop the hummus into a bowl and with a spoon make a well using a swirl motion. If desired, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with smoked paprika and coarse salt.
