After blending it with all the other ingredients, it looked a lot better (see below). I don't know that this will become my go-to hummus method; even though the grinding is done for you, you still need a pot and a blender whereas in the normal method you only need one thing. And I'm guessing that if you use dried chickpeas in the "normal" method it's significantly more cost effective than this way. Still, a fun change.

1/4 c olive oil

Instructions1. Heat water in a saucepan and whisk in chickpea flour. Cook until it thickens (5+ min) and then remove from heat, cover, and let cool.
2. Blend everything together. Makes about 4 c of hummus.
