Classic Hummus Recipe

  • 1 1 lb & 15 oz can of chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (plus more for the top)
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • lime or lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • cayenne pepper to taste and/or for topping

Blend the chickpeas by themselves first, then blend them with water. Mince a clove of garlic and add in to the chickpeas. Add the lime juice, a really easy way to juice them (as shown above) is by using tongs. It seriously makes juicing limes a thousand times easier. Add in the tahini, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and cayenne pepper and blend. Then pour into a container or bowl and drizzle on some extra oil and pepper, leave in the fridge to set.

    • Yeah I’ve noticed that too. I like that so many people now are staring to open up to different foods and now use those foods to create new, exciting foods. And I checked out your version and I like I how used uncanned chickpeas, I know that’s how its usually done but I’ve always done it with canned chickpeas. Thanks for the comment!
