Hummus Recipe

This hummus recipe is another one of our favorites!  I’ve adapted it from our friend’s cookbook (The Two Sisters Cookbook). It’s pretty simple, super tasty & cheap!


Makes about 2 cups

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup water

1 garlic clove

1 T. cumin

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

2 (15.5oz) cans chickpeas/garbanzo beans, drained

Combine everything EXCEPT chickpeas in blender. Blend for 10 seconds. Add drained chickpeas and blend until smooth.

Hummus is delicious when served as a spread on tortillas or bagels, or it can be used as a dip with pretzels, vegetables or chips.

    I’ve been meaning to look for a hummus recipe because I have two jars of garbanzo beans I canned earlier this year specifically for hummus. Thank you Jill!

  5. Margaret

    This looks great! A lot like my own recipe…..except I add a bit of sesame oil.

    • ELIZABEth

      Ooh…sesame oil changes so many dishes from great to completely, amazingly addicting. Good call.

  6. Elizabeth

    I haven’t made hummus in yeeears. Like, over a decade. This has just inspired me to begin making it again. It looks delicious! Thank you!

  7. Patricia Carnie

    But you’re missing the Tahini (Sesame seed paste). Try putting some of that in your Hummus next time and I think you’ll love it even more.

  8. Angie

    I made this today and it was wonderful, although I did have to add a little more water to get it to come together smoothly.

  9. Maryface

    I love your humus…easy quick yummy. However I will try it with Tahiti and sesame oil. I have even sprinkled feta cheese on top. Of all thinks the kids liked the cheese addition. Your basic recipe is great. Thanks.

    Thank you for sharing! I had no idea hummus was this easy. Quick question- Do you use a raw fresh garlic clove? Or one from a garlic jar? Just curious if the garlic taste is really strong!

    • Derick & Jill

      Either one…and I add extra sometimes if I’d like more garlic flavor. If using fresh this amount won’t be overpowering and if using minced from the jar it will be even less noticeable.

    We always put honey in our hummus! Just a Tablespoon… and LOTS of garlic! What a great snack 🙂
