Homemade hummus is very easy to make and it tastes so much better than those that you buy at the grocery store. In my homemade hummus recipe, I use tahini or sesame seeds paste. You can use canned chickpeas or loose chickpeas seeds.

 

Ingredients: 

1 1/2 cups chickpeas, cooked and drained
1 large fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup well mixed tahini paste
1 small garlic clove, minced
Salt to taste
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, for serving
2 to 3 tablespoons (30 to 45 ml) water
Dash ground paprika, for serving – optional

 

Directions: 

How to get the loose chickpeas ready for cooking:

 

Place the loose chickpeas in a large bowl and cover with several inches of water to allow for expansion and soak overnight.

How to cook the chickpeas:

  1. Drain the water and rinse before cooking
  2. Add them to a large pot
  3. Cover with water
  4. Add 1 tsp salt
  5. Boil on medium law, until fully cooked (about 1 hour)

How to make the Hummus:

  1. Rinse canned chickpeas under cool, running water.
  2. Reserve about 10 whole chickpeas in a small bowl, for decorating later.
  3. In your food processor, pulse washed chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  4. Scrape the sides and bottom of the food processor with a spoon , then pulse a little bit more, until smooth and creamy- about 1-2 minutes.
  5. If your hummus is too thick, blend 1-2 extra tablespoons of cold water into your hummus until reaching your desired consistency.
  6. Taste and adjust the seasoning: Extra pinch of salt or a little extra lemon juice.
  7. Transfer hummus mixture to a serving plate.
  8. Decorate with reserved whole chickpeas.
  9. Serve topped with drizzle of olive oil and a light sprinkle of paprika powder.
  10. Enjoy!
