Jeremy’s Garlic Hummus

Sometimes I buy chickpeas with plans to make hummus or salad, and other times I’m inspired by a recipe first and then get the beans. This time it was the latter. My older brother Jeremy posted a delicious looking recipe on Facebook and the next day I ran out and got the key ingredients. Just a quick note about Jeremy’s cooking: it’s always so good. He’s the kind of cook who can take ingredients, play it by ear and the dish turns out delicious everytime! And this hummus was no exception: it’s delicious, savory and very garlicky hummus recipe. After I made it, he suggested reducing the number of garlic cloves, but if you like garlic — keep it as is! Thanks Jeremy, this was a hit!
