Servings: 8


  • food processor


  • 1 can chickpeas (= garbanzo beans) drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt, to taste


  • Blend all ingredients except olive oil in a food processor until smooth. Add water, if needed, to reach desired consistency. Stir in olive oil.
  • Serve with whole grain pita, carrots, celery, and/or bell peppers.


The ingredient amounts listed above are my preferred ratios. But I encourage you to tweak things to suit your own preferences! Like your hummus a bit more lemony? Add more lemon juice. Prefer less tahini? Simply cut that back. The variations are endless.
