Hummus is a popular food worldwide because it is delicious and nutritious both at the same time. If hummus is in your fridge you won’t probably remain hungry for long. There are several ways in which you can consume smooth, scrumptious hummus. The best thing is that the Galaxy Gas Nitrous Recipe: Vegan Hummus is a completely vegan dish. If you have a love for hummus and you eat it often, it is good to develop a habit of making it at home. Homemade hummus is easy, healthy, and quick. You only need a few basic ingredients with which you can make the best hummus at home. We used a basic hummus recipe and aerated in our Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser so that it becomes fluffy, smooth and frothy. You can use hummus as a dip for vegetables, pita chips, crackers, or bread. Hummus is also a great spread and can be used in a variety of vegetarian sandwiches such as ‘Hummus and Avocado sandwich’, ‘hummus veggie wrap’ or ‘grilled hummus vegetable’.

Tips

What is the right consistency for hummus?
You can vary the consistency of hummus depending on your preference and intended usage.
For spreads: if you prefer a thinner consistency for making sandwiches and increasing the amount of water in the recipe.
For dips: if you prefer a thicker consistency for dips, you can add a pinch of xanthan gum for a more stable foam.
Can you make hummus without tahini?
Some people dislike the strong flavor of tahini, especially children. As a substitute for tahini, you can use good quality sesame oil or extra virgin olive oil. You can also use half tahini and half oil as this will make the flavor of tahini milder without excluding it.
Some restaurants exclude the real tahini sauce and just add sesame oil to reduce the costs. However, the real hummus must contain tahini sauce. Adding an excessive amount of tahini also results in an unpleasant taste.
How to make a super creamy and smooth hummus?
If you prefer a super creamy hummus, you can remove the skins of the chickpeas. When you strain the hummus before pouring it into the Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser, the hummus mixture gets an ultimately creamy consistency as all the large particles are left behind in the sieve. The cream whipper also gives a rich foam to the dip.
How to preserve the hummus?
In the refrigerator, the hummus will remain good for about 5 – 6 days. You can keep it in an airtight container or even in your Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser. The freezer hummus can be stored for up to two to three months in an airtight freezer-safe container. Don’t fill the container to its edges and leave at least half-inch space between the lid and the sauce. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before use.
How can you serve hummus?
Hummus is such a versatile sauce that you can use it in a variety of ways. Here are some of the most common options;
As a Garnish
As a sandwich spread
As a binder or in place of mayo
As a dip for vegetable sticks and tortilla chips.
Can you use dried chickpeas instead of canned ones?
Yes, the real hummus is made from dried chickpeas boiled enough to become tender. For making them tender, it is essential to add some baking soda to the water in which you are boiling the chickpeas.
The dried chickpeas are superior to canned chickpeas both in terms of flavor and nutritional value.
How much garlic should you use in hummus?
Adding a little bit of garlic is essential, but the amount of garlic must be controlled to make sure that it does not dominate the flavor of hummus. The flavor should still depend on tahini and chickpeas.
What spices are essential in a good traditional hummus?
The traditional recipes of hummus include the spices such as lemon, cumin, garlic, salt, olive oil, and parsley. Adding coriander instead of parsley will alter the taste.
Which chickpeas go best in hummus?
Garbanzo beans which are the Mexican chickpeas, are most often used in the recipes. However, they may not be the best choice for making hummus. Try grabbing some small-grained chickpeas if possible for making a perfectly traditional hummus.
Can you use canned lemon juice for making this recipe?
Canned lemon juice is less healthy than the juice extracted from fresh lemons. Some people also feel that it has an unpleasant aftertaste. Therefore we don’t recommend using canned lemon juice unless you have no other option.
