Recipe Ingredients for Hummus

15 ounce chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup tahini
5 tablespoons (plus 2 teaspoons) lemon juice, freshly squeezed

1 clove garlic
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
1 Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons parsley leaves, chopped fresh flat-leaf

While the motor is running, pour in the olive oil and process until fully incorporated. Season with pepper, to taste. Store in the refrigerator for 6 hours, for the flavors to come together.
