Serves: 8 Cooking Time: 5 minutes


  • 2 cups                       Cooked chickpeas also known as Garbanzo beans. You can soak your own or use tinned
  • 3 ½ - 5 tbsp             Freshly squeezed lemon juice (adjust to taste)
  • 3 tbsp                        Tahini (some prefer the taste of almond butter)
  • 2 tbsp                        extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1                                Small or medium organic clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ tsp                         Toasted sesame oil
  • ½ tsp                         Himalayan salt
  • ¼ cup                        Water
  •                                   Freshly ground black pepper to taste



Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. You will want to taste the hummus to see if it needs more lemon, Tahini, garlic, or salt. Also, add more water for a thinner consistency and process again. Hummus freezes very well.


When serving in a large bowl you can drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper.
