Homemade Hummus Recipe

Homemade hummus is very easy to make and it tastes so much better than those store bought ones. The hummus recipe I make uses tahini paste and canned chickpeas. I find canned chickpeas to be very quick when preparing hummus and they also taste very good!
Authentic Lebanese Hummus recipe is always made with dried chickpeas which is also a beautiful thing, but could be time consuming. If you have the time, you should definitely give it a try . You’ll need about 1 1/2 cups of cooked chickpeas for this recipe (roughly 1/3 cups of dried chickpeas). If you decide to use dried chickpeas, make sure to read: How to get the dried chickpeas ready for cooking section before you start.
