Ok guys, I made a recipe. This one is all me here. And we are obsessed! Since invention about two weeks ago, I believe we’ve made this three times…one of which was a double batch. We like hummus at our house and have tried a few different recipes but nothing was quite right.

This one is.

In fact, this one is perfect. For us. Don’t want to get too carried away here. Everyone likes things a little different. Anyway, here it is. Try it. You aren’t out much if you don’t like it. But I may think you’re crazy. Because it’s delicious.hummus

Easy and Delicous Homemade Hummus

Easy and Delicous Homemade Hummus


  • 1 can chickpeas or garbanzo beans (cause they're the same thing)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of salt (more or less to taste - we like our fairly salty so start with less. It's easy to add more later.)
  • dash of garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Tahini (can be found near the peanut butter in my case or see the link near the end.)
  • Olive oil (optional)


Microwave the chickpeas with their juice and the garlic cloves for 5 minutes. You'll want to put them in a bowl that's a little large because they do boil over.

Remove from microwave and add remaining ingredients.

Blend everything together with an immersion blender, food processor, blender, whatever! until smooth. Add olive oil to desired consistency. I usually use about 1 Tablespoon. It will thicken once cooled.

Delicious eaten hot or cold or anywhere in between.

Feel free to add any garnishes you prefer.

Especially delicious with fresh vegetables and these pitas.

Hope you like it!

If you are not able to find Tahini in your grocery store (because it seriously took me years! to find it) then you can order some from Amazon. This is actually a much better price than I paid in the store.
