Easy Garlic Hummus

I love hummus, but many store-bought brands have added ingredients that don’t sit well with my sensitive stomach (or don’t have enough garlic!).  This is an easy and delicious hummus recipe you can modify to suit your tastes.  I make a large (3 cup) batch because it goes super quick in my house, but you can easily cut it in half.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Makes approx. 3 cups

Ingredients:

2 15 oz cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
3 TBS tahini (sesame seed paste) – optional*
Juice of 1 lemon
4 – 6 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil (plus extra for drizzling)
2 TBS ground cumin
6 TBS water
1 tsp salt (or more to taste)

To Serve:

Drizzle of olive oil
Dash of ground paprika

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a large food processor (or high speed blender) and blend until desired consistency is reached, scraping down the sides as needed. Taste and adjust salt if desired.  Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and paprika (or cayenne if you like it hot!).

Serve with crackers or sliced veggies, or as a condiment in sandwiches.  Namaste ❤

* If you like your hummus thicker and creamier, add more tahini. If you like it lighter and fluffier, add less. Or, to eliminate tahini, just add more olive oil until desired consistency is reached.
