Homemade hummus spread

Makes about 1 cup

  • 1 (15-ounce) can cooked chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 small cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, adjusted to taste
  • 1/4 cup water

  1. Drain the chickpeas and pinch the skin off of them before adding to a food processor. (Note: Removing the skins is optional but it will result in a smoother hummus).
  2. Add olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt to the food processor and blend until pureed.
  3. With the food processor running, slowly add the water until the hummus is smooth and creamy.
  4. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
