Homemade Hummus Recipe

Course Side Dish
Cuisine Mediterranean
Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 8


  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 can chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • fresh vegetables and pita bread for serving


  1. Add the tahini, cold water, olive oil, cumin, salt, garlic, and lemon juice to a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the chickpeas and blend for several minutes, until completely smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of water to thin it out a little.
  2. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with fresh vegetables and pita bread on the side for dipping. For a prettier presentation, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with paprika before serving.
