  • Food Processor
  • Hand Blender
  • Nutri Bullet
  • Fork


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup Tahini
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic ( adding more will be very strong, so stick to 2; but if you are a garlic lover like me, use a lot)
  • 2-4 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 can 15 fl oz Garbanzo beans, rinsed, drain and pat sry with paper towel


  • Add Tahini, water, olive oil, salt, garlic and lemon juice in the food processor. Adding them first make it easier to coat with the beans. Puree until smooth.
  • Add in the drained Garbanzo/chickpea. Puree until creamy pausinf halfway to scrape the sides of the bowl.  Process until smooth. It it looks thick, add in water.
  • Taste and season with additional salt, cumin, and/or lemon juice if needed.
  • Garnish with oil, cilantro or paprika.


  • Yes you can freeze hummus up to 3 months, but you have to freeze it in smaller batch. If you can try to consume it quickly as freezing changes the texture and taste of the Hummus
  •  Make sure that the container is safe to prevent flavor contamination from the surrounding freezer odors.
  • Add a small amount thin layer of olive oil on top. Don’t add too much that the oil will change the flavor of the hummus when thawed.
  • Thaw and stir when ready to consume.
