Easy Hummus Recipe
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 16 oz can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice (taste accordingly)
  • 1.5 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 small cloves of garlic, crushed (use only 1 clove if you prefer yours mild)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • A dash of cayenne pepper
  1. If you do not like the raw taste of garlic, you can either saute the garlic in the olive oil for 30 seconds (till soft but not golden) or place the garlic in a low temperature oven for 10 mins.
  2. Alternatively you can just use the garlic fresh.
  3. Place chickpeas in a blender or food processor with garlic, olive oil, water, and salt. Blend or puree until very smooth,
  4. You can stream in a little bit more olive oil to help achieve a super creamy texture if the hummus is too thick.
  5. Serve with raw vegetables, pitas, tortillas or as a spread on your sandwiches or wraps.
