Recipe: Classic Hummus

January 13, 2017

Just plop this goodness on anything.


Or eat it alone with a spoon. That works too.


In all honesty, hummus has become a true staple in my house. Makes for a perfect snack with crackers or veggies, and instantly spices up a salad or sandwich.


Bonus - it takes  10 minutes to make!


Classic hummus 


  • 1 12oz. can garbanzo beans

  • 1 lemon, squeezed 

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil + more for smoother consistency when mixing and for serving

  • 2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin

  • salt and pepper to taste

*Sometimes I add 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame paste, but not always!) 


1.) In a food processor, add all ingredients and mix until smooth consistency. Feel free to add more of a particular ingredient to taste to your preference.

2.) When mixed, pour hummus in a serving bowl and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and parsley (fresh or dried) before serving.
