  • 1 food processor (a blender or chopper will also work)


  • 1/2 cup tahini sauce

  • 1/2 clove garlic peeled and minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 can (8 oz) chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • salt to taste


  • Stir up the tahini sauce and add it to the food processor.
  • Add lemon juice and run the food processor for about 1 minute.
  • Next, add the garlic, olive oil, ground cumin, chickpeas, and about 1/2 tsp of salt to start.
  • Run the processor for another minute. Then, stop to scrape the sides and to taste test whether more salt is needed.
  • Run the processor another minute.
  • Once it's at the texture and taste you prefer, you can be done.


If you want your hummus creamier and less thick, add about 1-2 tbsp of water, and run the food processor a little longer.
