Learn how to make hummus from scratch! You'll never want to go back to store bought once you try this delicious and easy (10-minute!) hummus.


Units Scale
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas (or 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas)
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra to drizzle on top
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • paprika or chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Prep: Rinse and drain the chickpeas, removing any loose skins as you rinse them; halve and juice the lemon and mince the garlic.
  2. Process: Place all of the ingredients except the water and garnishes in a food processor fitted with a standard S blade. Process for 1-2 minutes, scraping down the slides with a plastic spatula once of twice. Add a little water at a time as you process for another 1-2 minutes or until your hummus is smooth and creamy.
  3. Enjoy: Serve your hummus in a bowl, drizzle a little extra olive oil on top and garnish with some paprika or fresh parsley. Leftover hummus will stay fresh in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
