This Quick, Light & Creamy Lemon Hummus is one of my favorite recipes ever. It's super creamy, healthy, light and delicious. You can can serve it with salad, raw vegetables or with some crispy bread.What makes this Hummus even better is the fact that if you use canned chickpeas you can make it within 5 minutes; all you need are a few ingredients and a food-processor or a blender.
Regarding the chickpeas, you can use canned ones or you can cook them yourself. I don't think there's a huge difference. Self-cooked chickpeas tend to make a creamier Hummus but it takes quite some time to get them ready to use. Whereas canned chickpeas make a chunkier cream but allow you to make Hummus within 5 minutes. I personally love it both ways but I'm a very spontaneous person so I usually grab a can of chickpeas and I make Hummus straight away.
If you want to cook the legumes yourself then it's really important that you incorporate baking soda in the water you soak and cook the chickpeas in. Baking soda will raise the pH levels of the water which will soften the chickpeas. This will make them quicker to cook and super creamy.
