Hummus Recipe

My best friend Emily Fowler shared this amazing recipe for Hummus with me! I made it today - and it is too good not to share with everyone!

2 (15.5oz) cans no-salt-added Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) - rinsed and drained
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
3 Tablespoons lemon juice (fresh)
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

 Step 1: Rinse and drain the Chickpeas

Step 2: Put everything in the food processor & blend

Step 3: Taste to see if it needs anything extra (I added more salt, pepper, and garlic)

Step 4: Enjoy!


  1. is there a flavor to tahini? i want to make some hummus, it is good on points for weight watcher. my memory of hummus is that is doesn't have a lot of flavor to it.

  2. Sorry Mrs. Brady i'm just now seeing your comment! The tahini doesn't really have too much flavor - like a mild peanut butter. I added extra garlic to add flavor to mine.
