In Deb Perelman's post on hummus a few weeks ago she suggests peeling the chickpeas before blending them. That's right, peeling the super thin, translucent skin off of each individual chickpea. I read the post and thought, ok, that sounds nice for someone with time to kill. But as I was whipping up a batch of hummus the other day I felt compelled to try it. And it worked! Smooth hummus without the grainy texture.
Crazy? A little. Have you tried it?
