Remove skin from chickpeas
Remove the skins from the chickpeas by pinching them between your forefingers and discard (optional).
Add the chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon, olive oil, and to the bowl of a food processor and blend until pureed.
Slowly add water and continue to blend until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
Serve or store.
Season with salt then transfer to a small bowl. Garnish with parsley and lemon slices. The hummus can be made up to a week ahead of time and refrigerated in an airtight container.
