Basic Garlic Hummus

This basic garlic hummus is perfect with chopped vegetables, pita chips or on your favorite sandwich. It’s so easy to make (it took only 5 minutes!)

Makes: About 4 servings

  • One 15-oz can of organic garbanzo beans (or chickpeas)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp iodized salt (if you love salt, use up to 1 tsp)
To make:

Rinse and drain garbanzo beans. Put all ingredients in a food processor. Puree for 60 seconds. Stop food processor and use a spoon to wipe sides down, making sure all ingredients are in the bottom. Continue to puree for another 30-60 seconds, until the hummus is smooth. Serve with fresh vegetables, pita or on a sandwich. Scoop leftovers into a container. Enjoy!


I used a meyer lemon from the farmer’s market, so deep in color it looks like an orange!
