Best Hummus Ever.

Not much else to say, really. This stuff is a good source of fiber, monounsaturated fats, and a little protein. And it goes on pita, bread, vegetables, in sandwiches… yum. Recipe sourced from here.


1 15-oz can garbanzo beans/ chickpeas

1 clove garlic (or 1/2 tsp minced garlic from the jar)

2 T tahini sauce

1/4 cup olive oil

2 T water

juice from 1/2 a lemon

2 tsp cumin

salt, to taste

Paprika as garnish

Make It:

Rinse the chickpeas really well in a colander. Dump into a food processor or blender along with garlic, tahini, olive oil, water, lemon juice, and cumin. Puree until smooth. The amount of water may vary based on your taste. I had to stir my mixture with a spatula a few times to get it to blend… worth it. Best hummus ever.

Possible variations: Add roasted red pepper and cut back on olive oil, add fresh herbs such as cilantro, and of course, you can add Sriracha to anything for some heat!

How do you like your hummus?
