  • 15 oz chickpeas with liquid, 1 can
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ tsp cumin ground
  • 2 garlic cloves sliced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cup lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • ½ cup tahini paste
  • ½ cup water


  • Cook chickpeas: Add the chickpeas with liquid to a small saucepan and cook over medium heat for about 5 to 10 minutes, or until most of the liquid has cooked off. Let the chickpeas cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Process in a food processor: Add the chickpeas and the rest of the ingredients, minus the water, to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add water if the hummus is too thick up to 1/2 cup or until the desired consistency is achieved.
  • Serve: Transfer hummus to a dish and drizzle some olive oil over it, then sprinkle with parsley and roasted chickpeas.



  1. Tahini paste is a condiment made from toasted sesame seeds and oil. It's a staple in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cooking.
  2. To make the roasted chickpeas, add some chickpeas without liquid to a bowl, season with cumin, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper and drizzle with some olive oil. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 F degrees for about 30 minutes or until crispy and crunchy.
  3. Storage: Store leftover hummus in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 to 7 days.
  4. Freezing: Freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty bags for 3 to 4 months.
  5. Nutrition: Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
