Creamy Homemade Hummus
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 6 - 8
  • 15.5 oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup tahini (roasted sesame paste)
  • 1 large lemon juiced (1/4 cup juice at minimum)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (additional for serving)
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • pinch of cumin
  1. Add all ingredients (except water) to the food processor and process for 2 -3 minutes until smooth.
  2. Add water as needed to get to desired consistency. I find that the full 3 tablespoons works perfectly!
  3. Serve topped with additional olive oil.
Try topping your hummus with different items. You can add ¼ cup of roasted red pepper, an olive tapenade or just serve topped simply with olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika.
