“Inspired by Zea's Hummus Appetizer Platter. Refrigerate time not included. (So good I strongly suggest doubling the hummus recipe since you'll already have on hand the toppings.) Note: I made a remarkable discovery. Adding lemon zest makes for extraordinary so I added it as an optional ingredient. Update: Substituting about half of the olive oil with chickpea juice makes for a fluffier hummus. Note: Since originally posting this recipe, I've come to realize that boiling your chickpeas for about 5 minutes makes for a better end product. Make sure you reserve the juice should you want a thinner hummus. Should you cook your own chickpeas from dried, use 1 1/2 cups drained chickpeas to equal the amount in a 15 ounce can.”
