Homemade Hummus Recipe

Course: Condiments
Author: Ann Timm


  • 28 oz. can chickpeas or equivalent amount of your own cooked chickpeas
  • 7-8 cloves garlic
  • 2 1/2 lemons juiced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp tahini sesame seed paste- available in most ethnic food aisle and health food stores


  • Put 1 28 oz. can of chickpeas in a pot and boil until darker, then let cool (since I cook all my own beans, I just make the approximate amount, and overcook them slightly).
  • Food process or blend the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, salt and tahini until smooth. If needed, add small amounts of water to help blend, until you reach a consistency that you like.
