We made this one about a week ago and it was great. This is just a basic hummus, I have variations for Garlic or Red Pepper hummus too. – Malan

Substituting dried, cooked garbanzo beans makes this a 5 star recipe!  We also like it with an extra clove of garlic and topped with paprika. – Shamroq


  • 3 T lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 6 T tahini, stirred well. Recommend the Joyva Sesame Tahini brand

  • 14oz can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 garlic clove minced or pressed
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Step 1

Combine lemon juice and water. In a separate bowl whisk tahini and olive oil.
