Tip for Extra Creamy Hummus: We suggest you remove as many of the skins as you can. For Step #3, we place the beans in a colander (saving the cooking water of course) and begin to rinse the beans under cool water. We rinse our beans using our water spray unit holding it close to the beans while gently turning the beans with a wooden spoon. The bean temperature change encourages the majority of the skins to loosen and fall off. Then we place the beans on a sheet pan, spread them out, pick out the loose skins and dispose of them, and continue with Step #4 to the end of the recipe.
