Easy Homemade Hummus

Hummus is a great accompaniment for a snack, and this recipe contains a good balance of carbs, protein and healthy fats. This is super simple and I encourage you to make this over your store-bought hummus.

Makes 2 cups


  • 1 can of chickpeas in brine

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup tahini

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 Tbsp water


  1. In a food processor, (a blender or nutribullet doesn't work very well for this recipe) add the lemon juice and tahini and blend well until all whipped together.

  2. Add the olive oil, garlic, cumin and salt to the food processor and blend.

  3. Add in half the can of chickpeas and blend. Scraping the sides down and blend again. Then add in the remaining can of chickpeas and blend further. Add a bit of water and a dash of olive oil (if needed) to make the consistency a bit smoother.

  4. Season to taste and serve or store in a large glass jar.
