Cook the Chickpeas: (*Do Not Soak) Place dried chickpeas in the slow cooker. Add 32 ounces of water (or vegetable stock), ½ onion and 1 teaspoon salt. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 3 hours. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Discard onion.
Transfer chickpeas to a large clean kitchen towel or paper towels, and dry, massaging the chickpeas gently to remove their skins.
Transfer chickpeas to the bowl of a food processor and add cloves of garlic. Process until chickpeas resemble wet sand, about 2 minutes. Add the tahini, sea salt and pepper. Process again until smooth. With processor running, stream in olive oil. Slowly stream in the chickpea cooking liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is achieved*.
Meanwhile: In a small bowl combine the “Everything” hummus toppings. Stir to combine
To Serve: Divide the hummus between one, or multiple, serving bowl(s) and create a small well in the middle. Drizzle with a bit of extra virgin olive oil and everything hummus toppings. Garnish with gravlax, capers and red onions. Serve with bagel chips or pita bread. Enjoy!
