Our Favorite Hummus

We are often asked to share our hummus recipe. This one is our favorite.  Feel free to change the quantities or ingredients to your preference.

 

Ingredients

1/2 c.               Raw Tahini

6 Tbsp.             Lemon Juice

6 cloves           Garlic

1/4 c.               Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

1 tsp.               Ground Cumin

3/4 tsp.           Sea Salt

1/8 tsp.           Cayenne

2 (15oz.) cans Chickpeas, drained & rinsed

6 Tbsp.            Water

 

Directions

  1. Blend tahini and lemon juice in a processor or blender until combined, 1 min.
  2. Scrape sides, then add garlic, cumin, sea salt, and cayenne. Process 1 min, scrape.
  3. With the machine running, slowly add olive oil. Blend 1 min.
  4. Add half the chickpeas, process 1 min. Add the other half, process 1 min, until well combined.  (It will be thick at this point.)
  5. With the processor running, add the water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
  6. Keep blending until super smooth.
  7. Transfer to a bowl. From here, you can add whichever flavors and toppings you’d like.  We like to drizzle a little extra-virgin olive oil on top and sprinkle with paprika.
  8. Cover and chill 2 hrs.
  9. Serve with veggies or use as a spread on sandwiches/wraps.
