1. The evening before you plan to have the hummus, soak the chickpeas in a large pot of water overnight. The water should be double the volume of the beans (they will expand a great deal as they absorb liquid).
2. Drain the chickpeas. Blend the beans in a food processor for about a minute. While motor is running, add in all remaining ingredients. After water is added, let processor run for 5 minutes (this sounds long but trust me). This will yield the most pillowy and smooth hummus. Place hummus in the fridge and let rest for 30 minutes before serving. Once ready, let come to room temperature, drizzling with more tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and fresh parsley.
