Introduction: Best Hummus Recipe!

Hello Everyone!

This is my favorite hummus recipe so far! There are so many varieties of hummus at the store without flavor or that have a strange coarse texture.

My recipe is smooth and flavorful! You can adjust the amount of olive oil to make it thicker like traditional hummus or fluffier like a sandwich spread.

My favorite way to eat the hummus is on naan bread (Indian flat bread) with smoked salmon! Whoo!


Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

1 (15-16 oz) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)

2.5-4 tbsp olive oil (2.5 tbsp = thicker, 4 = fluffier)

2 tbsp tahini

3-4 tbsp lemon juice

2 cloves garlic minced or approximately 1/4 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cumin

Step 2: Mixing Ingredients
