A question about a recipe: Yotam Ottolenghi & Sami Tamimi's Basic Hummus

I have a question about the recipe "Yotam Ottolenghi & Sami Tamimi's Basic Hummus" from Genius Recipes. Can this hummus be frozen? Time is at a premium here, so when I make anything, I always ask if I can double or triple the recipe, to freeze. In fact, with the boys gone, we won't consume even a single batch in three days. Thanks, everyone! ;o)

I'd like to know if I can freeze hummus in general and also this recipe of course.

Yes, you can freeze hummus. I usually defrost it in the fridge only. When it's thawed, give it a good stir before putting it in the serving bowl. I'd use it all up after it's defrosted, discard any leftovers.

Pegeen, just to follow up . . . I made a huge batch (there's a funny story here, for another day), and put in the freezer 4 pints, about two weeks ago. We defrosted one yesterday and it's absolutely perfect. I delayed stirring in more lemon juice (the basic recipe is just not lemony enough for me) and drizzling olive oil over it, until after freezing and thawing. It's so good! And I wouldn't touch hummus -- just could not stand the stuff -- until I tried this recipe. Thanks again! ;o)
