Ingredients

  • 15 ounce chickpeas drained and rinse, reserve liquid from can
  • ¼ cup olive oil extra virgin
  • ½ teaspoon cumin ground
  • 2 garlic cloves sliced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cup lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • ½ cup tahini paste

Instructions

  • Process in a food processor or blender: Add the chickpeas and the rest of the ingredients, excluding the liquid from the can of chickpeas, to a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. Add the liquid from the can of chickpeas if the hummus is too thick up to ½ cup or until the desired consistency is achieved.
  • Serve: Transfer hummus to a dish and drizzle some olive oil over it, then garnish with parsley or sumac for extra lemony flavor.

Notes

  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. I have found that using a blender over a food processor, results in a much smoother hummus, so it just depends what texture you're going for.
  4. Storage: Store leftover hummus in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 to 7 days.
  5. Freezing: Store it in airtight containers, pour a thin layer of olive oil over the top of the hummus to preserve moisture, then freeze for up to 4 months. The day before you want to serve it, transfer it to the refrigerator. It will take a few hours to thaw until it's ready to eat. Once it's thawed, stir it up and serve!
