+ A food processor or blender. I used Vitamix. It gives a super smooth texture.
Place all ingredients in the food processor or blender. Add 3 tablespoons of the reserved chickpea liquid.
Process the hummus continuously until it becomes very smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to integrate any large chunks.
Spoon into serving dish, swirl a little olive oil over the top and sprinkle with paprika and chopped coriander leaves.
Serve with crackers or pita bread and raw vegetables such as carrots, beetroot, capsicum, cucumber or celery.
