I like my hummus thick and garlicky. My old regular kitchen blender is really not up to the task - I hope I didn't do it any lasting damage with the last batch but it clearly couldn't pull that thick a paste. I am not into having every gizmo out there but do own a 35-year KitchenAid mixer I think K5A as well as an unused immersion blender which I suspect won't deal adequately with garlic blending even if I slice and dice. I think I may be headed toward a food processor but thought I'd ask advice. Thanks.
