Hummus is one of my favourite foods! It makes a regular appearance in most of my lunches, and I have been known to have a big plate of veggies, pita, and hummus for a quick dinner multiple times a week. This is a great basic recipe. 


1 15oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained - For extra creamy and smooth hummus, shell the chickpeas by rubbing off the outer skin with your fingers
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice, or to taste
1/4 tsp. sea salt, or to taste
Sprinkle of paprika
To serve: Pita and assorted vegetables


In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, garlic, tahini, olive oil, and lemon juice. Add in additional olive oil or a few Tablespoons of water to thin the hummus as needed. You can make it as thick or thin as you like. Season with salt and additional lemon juice to taste.

Sprinkle with paprika and serve with fresh vegetables or with homemade pita chips. Try my recipe for homemade pita chips here!
