Homemade Hummus

Leave a comment

Hummus is part of my household essentials. I can eat it with or on literally anything. Don’t believe me? Here are all the different ways I ear hummus. Ready?

Toast with hummus, over easy eggs, & paprika

Pita chips & hummus

Veggies & hummus

Baked chicken with hummus & olive oil

Hummus with hard boiled eggs, olive oil, & paprika

Pretzels & hummus

Rice & hummus

Avocado & hummus

Often times it ends up on my plate as a side and will accompany whatever chicken and salad I’m eating. It’s just so yummy! I definitely still buy hummus at the store since in the morning I’m not especially into whipping up a fresh batch, but for dinner parties I love making fresh hummus. It’s super easy and the creamy consistency is so different than store-bought. I promise you’ll want to work this into your regular rotation at home.


Homemade Hummus

What you need

  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tblspns fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tblspns tahini
  • kosher salt
  • paprika
Servings 6 people

What to do

  • Rinse your garbanzo beans.
  • In a blender, bullet, or food processor, combine the garbanzo beans, garlic, olive oil, tahini, & lemon juice.
  • Pulse, don't blend. You will need to use a spoon to move the mixture around so it doesn't keep blending the same spot.
  • I don't mind some chunks in mine but you can definitely blend it through entirely. Just don't over blend.
  • Serve in a bowl, drizzle more olive oil, & sprinkle some paprika.
