An Easy to Make Hummus Recipe

A simple hummus recipe

I love hummus.  I could eat it every day, and oftentimes, I do!  I like that it's versatile, easy to make, and garlicky.  The fact that it's a great source of protein and fiber are good too, I suppose.  Healthy snacky/junk food…ohhh yeeeaaahhh. 

Easy Hummus Recipe


2 cans of Garbanzo Beans (aka chickpeas), drained.   Reserve the liquid. 

2 cloves of chopped garlic.  More if you like it garlicky.  I generally use 3 or 4 cloves.  

1/4 cup Olive Oil

3 Tbsp Lemon Juice

3 Tbsp Tahini.  This is optional, as it's not a huge flavor.  You can also use sesame oil, which doesn't go bad as quickly as tahini.   

Toss everything in the food processor, except the garbanzo bean liquid, and give it a whirl.  Process until smooth.  If your hummus is too thick, add some of the garbanzo liquid and give it another whirl.  It should be thick, but not pasty.  you should be able to spread or scoop the hummus. 

The consistency is a personal preference.

I like mine topped with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of smoked paprika.  Serve with veggies, chips, crackers, warm pita, whatever!

    I have never had Humus, not real sure that I want to, but this recipe does look good.


  1. […] Pretzel Crisps are the best part of the pretzel.  You get all the good outside part without the huft and bulk of the bready part of the pretzel.  They’re thin and crispy, like a cracker.  You can eat them by the handful.  Or you can be graceful and have Pretzel Crisps with traditional toppings or dips.  I really like them with Hummus.  […]
