Try this: overnight soak and boil the chickpeas for an hour- don't skimp on the boil time then reserve the water. Boil time gets the cp's creamy. You can peel them but I don't. In a food processor combine: chickpeas, garlic, olive oil, salt, tahini, lemon juice and reserve "boil" water then process until smooth. Add ingredients until the taste suits you. When serving the hummus, top with more olive oil plus sumac and horseradish. Warm up some pita and go!
Josh, this story was so great and inspiring. The line that sucked me in: "The problem with this is that you, and by you, I mean me, are divorced." Let's just say that you are not alone. Thank you for sharing it.
