Great tips from this video:
  • When making hummus, add your chopped fresh garlic into the final dish instead of into the food processor with the rest of the ingredients. The food processor will cause the garlic to overpower the dish.
  • If your hummus is too thick, adding water while it pureés in the food processor will help smooth it out without compromising taste.
