Homemade Hummus

A classic Middle Eastern dish, hummus is the perfect healthy dip or spread to serve as an appetizer or mid-day snack.

Usually paired with crackers or pita bread, hummus is a great source of protein and fiber. It’s also incredibly simple to make; all you need is a few ingredients and a blender or food processor.

This recipe also includes a trick to help make the hummus extra smooth, making it much easier to spread.



1 (15 ounce) can of chickpeas

1/4 cup of Organic Sesame Tahini Spread 

1/4 cup of lemon juice

1 clove of garlic minced

1/2 tsp. of salt

2 to 3 tbsps. of ice cold water

1/2 tsp. of ground cumin

2 tbsps. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving





  1. Drain and rinse chickpeas.
  2. In a food processor or blender, combine the Sesame Tahini and lemon juice and let blend for 1 minute. Scrape sides and bottom, then process for 30 more seconds.
  3. Add olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, and salt. Process for 30 seconds or until well blended.
  4. Add half of the chickpeas to processor or blender and blend for 1 minute. Then add remaining chickpeas and process until thick and smooth for 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. If hummus is still too thick or has bits of chickpeas, add 2 to 3 tbsps. of water until you reach a smooth consistency.
  6. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and dash of paprika or other spice.


Store hummus in airtight container and refrigerate for up to one week.
