Homemade Hummus

As I sit here on Sunday evening, hungry and in need of a snack, I grabbed carrots and hummus.

I’ve made my own hummus a number of times, but we have these snack cups to go through…seriously though, wishing for my hummus!

Here is my original hummus recipe:

Homemade Hummus


  • 1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), reserve liquid
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup tahini (sesame butter)
  • Sea salt (to taste; optional)
  • Paprika (for garnish; optional)


1. Place chickpeas, lemon juice, oil, and garlic in food processor or blender and pulse until chickpeas are mashed.

2. Add tahini; pulse for 1 minute. If hummus is too thick, add some of the reserved chickpea liquid. Add salt if desired.

3. Garnish with paprika if desired
