How To Make Hummus

5 from 1 review

Quick healthy dip!


  • 1 15 ounce can chick peas (or see below for how to start with dried beans)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (Sesame paste)
  • juice of one lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/4 cup water (maybe a little more)
  • Optional: 1/4 -1/2 teaspoon salt; 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin; paprika; cayenne pepper


  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas quickly to remove most of the gooey liquid.
  2. Put everything in your blender. It works better if you put the liquids in first.
  3. Pulse it a little to get it moving and poke at it if you have to.
  4. Add a little more water if necessary to get it to a nice, creamy, smooth-as-silk consistency.
  5. Put it in a fancy bowl. Drizzle some extra oil on top. Put some paprika on it.
  6. Dip your love machine (or just carrot sticks) into it.
