Number of Servings: 8


    1 cup chickpeas (garbonzo beans), drained

    1 T tahini paste

    1/4 cup olive oil

    2 tsp sea salt

    1/2 tsp ground black pepper

    1T lemon juice or half of a lemon

    1/2 cup water


    Without adding too many extra calories or fat....try out some of my favorite additions.


    Roasted Garlic Hummus: Leave whole and cut the tops off of two heads of garlic. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and ground pepper. Wrap in foil and bake in a 325 degree over for about one hour. When finished let cool and when able to handle gently squeeze the roasted garlic out and blend with hummus.

    Roasted Red Pepper: Add 1/2 C chopped roasted red peppers and blend with hummus.

    Grilled Vegetable: Add 1/2 C chopped grilled vegetables. My favorite is red onion, green pepper and red pepper.


Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender. I like to use my magic bullet. It is so fast and easy clean up too!

Best if left in the fridge for at least two hours before serving. This allows the flavors to fully combine.

Note: Depending on the consistency you like your hummus you may want to decrease or increase the amount of water you add to the recipe.

Makes approx 2 C (8 servings = 4T per person)
