Classic Hummus

(2 Votes)
1 1/2 cups
10 Min

Hummus is typically served as a dip with wedges of pita bread or as a sandwich spread. It gets its distinctive flavor from tahini (sesame seed paste). Look for tahini in larger supermarkets or in Middle Eastern food stores.

What You'll Need

  • 2 (15-1/2-ounce) cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), undrained
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons tahini (see Note)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

What to Do

  1. Drain chickpeas, reserving 1/4 cup liquid; set aside.

  2. Process garlic in a food processor until minced. Add chickpeas, reserved 1/4 cup liquid, the tahini, and lemon juice; process 3 minutes or until smooth, scraping down sides occasionally.

  3. Transfer to a serving bowl. Serve immediately, or cover and chill.

  4. Serve with pita bread, pita chips, or fresh vegetables.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I used a stronger variety of garlic that I grew myself. Really good.

A little on the bland side. I couldn't taste the garlic, needs more.
