I am sharing the one hummus recipe that we make the most in our house. It’s super easy to make every day.

I usually make it while I have dinner cooking or I will make it to eat with lunch, earlier in the day. This recipe can be doubled or tripled, if you are serving it for a crowd.


– 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, no salt added, reserve the chickpea water to control the consistency of the hummus – 1 clove fresh garlic, peeled, minced, you can add more if you prefer – 1 teaspoon tahini, amount to taste, you can add more if you like the flavor

Drain the chickpeas and save the canning liquid

In a food processor, add chickpeas, fresh minced garlic, tahini, 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt and pulse. Slowly add in the chickpea water, pulsing in between to get the right consistency. Scrap down the sides of the food processor, if you need to.

Transfer into a serving bowl and drizzle with olive oil, more salt, if you wish and fresh ground pepper, to taste. Optionally, sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds. Enjoy, with your favorite tortilla chips or bread!
