Quick and Easy Classic Hummus

Classic Hummus

I love hummus!  Store-bought hummus cannot compare to a homemade version, and it is so simple to make; give it a try; you might like it too!



  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 34 tablespoons olive oil (or water if you don’t want to use oil)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon tahini
  • 12 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons water 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • In a food processor (or blender), add all ingredients.  
  • Blend until smooth.   
  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container.  
  • Garnish with good quality olive oil, toasted sesame seeds, crushed red pepper, or fresh vegetables.  
  • Classic hummus is the canvas, and it is beautiful by itself, but you can add all sorts of wonderful flavors to make exotic tasting hummus.  Have fun.
