Hummus from Dried Chickpeas

When I was on WIC I had dried chickpeas rather than canned so I had to adapt the hummus recipe. This basic recipe can be varied by adding black olives, roasted garlic, red peppers, or other ingredients -- just look at the packaged hummus in the deli for inspiration. You can even substitute peanut butter for the more expensive, and sometimes difficult to find, tahini for a budget-friendly variation with a different flavor that some people prefer. It makes a big batch that can be frozen in handy quanities. Best made the day before, but I can never keep my family out of it that long.
