Homemade Hummus

Ingredients (12 servings):

1 15 oz. (425 g) can of chickpeas

1 clove of garlic

1 tsp (5 mL) of ground cumin

¾ tsp (3.6 mL) salt

½ cup (125 mL) tahini

2 tbsp. (30 mL) extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

½ tsp (2.5 mL) ground pepper

1 large lemon juiced

How to make it:

1. Rinse chickpeas in cold water and let strain.

2. Combine tahini, fresh lemon juice and garlic in a food processor. Blend until smooth. (about 30 seconds)

3. Add and blend the rest of your ingredients. If the hummus isn’t smooth enough add ice water (approx. one tbsp. at a time) until it reaches desired consistency.

4. Once smooth, transfer to a bowl and add pepper.

5. Serve with carrots, cucumbers, or a veggie of your choice.


Hummus is super easy and can be made ahead of time for any event and served throughout the week! When purchasing Chickpeas/ Garbanzo beans check the ingredients – make sure there aren’t a lot of added ingredients. The can should just contain garbanzo beans, water, and salt.


For a fun variation, add roasted red peppers or other spices to the hummus and blend thoroughly to mix things up.
