Recipe from Bites: Homemade Hummus

by Jessie on January 4, 2013

Homemade hummus

This hummus is amazing! I can eat it by the spoonful. If you are a snack grazer, put some of this in a Tupperware with cut up carrots and celery dipped in for an easy grab and go snack.


1 can chickpeas, drained
1 clove garlic, minced
1 heaping Tbsp Tahini Paste (in peanut butter or natural section)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice + more if you want to thin it out
a pinch or two of salt


Put everything in the blender and blend it up. It will take a few times of pushing the mixture back down, and turning on again. If it’s too thick, I start by adding just a little bit of water. If it still needs more liquid, add a little bit more olive oil or lemon juice.
