Hummus in the House

Last night I made some home made humus. Just because I needed a snack and just because I could. I had all the ingredients including the once hard to find Tahini.

Home Made Hummus

        Serves 4


Food Processor

Chef’s Knife

Cutting Board


1 can chick peas

¼ cup Tahini

4 to 6 tablespoons olive oil

2 to 4 tablespoons water

1-tablespoon lemon juice

1 clove garlic peeled and chopped

1-teaspoon ground cumin

¼ tsp Onion powder

¼ tsp salt



Drain and rinse the chickpeas well. Add into you food processor. I have a small one that holds exactly one can of chickpeas. Larger food processors may require you to double this recipe.  Add the clove of chopped garlic, 4 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of water 1-tablespoon lemon juice,1-teaspoon ground cumin, pinch of onion powder, pinch of salt. Blend well on high. Slowly add 2 more tablespoons of olive oil while blending. Add 2 more tablespoons of water if the humus is not smooth enough.

Move to a glass bowl. Top with parsley, a sprinkle of paprika, and a drizzle of olive oil. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

NOTES: Serve with celery sticks, carrot sticks and pita bread.

Enjoy life, stay healthy, and have a great weekend!
