Homemade Hummus



  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1/3 of the water from the chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  2. Blend, and if it’s too thick, add a bit of water
  3. Top with olive oil and then your choice of paprika, sumac, pumpkin seeds etc


Delicious variations: roasted garlic, sundried tomato, curry, roasted beets, or cilantro lime.

You can skin the chickpeas for a smoother blend, but we usually just make hummus with chickpeas straight from the can.
