A recipe I learned from two Lebanese friends. This is my family's most requested dish at get-togethers.

Carol's hummous is awesome! Carol recently gave me her recipe when she couldn't make a family get-together[I'm her sister]. Easy recipe, although I should add make only 1 batch at a time, I found my double batch very hard to work with. I also found hot water is very important, as does tend to seize up. Otherwise, quick, easy and delicious! Cathy

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients except water in blender on pulse or puree setting, until smooth.
  2. You will need to add boiling hot water during this process as it tends to sieze up.
  3. If you accidentally add too much water it's okay as the lemon and tahini tend to suck it up.
  4. Transfer to serving plate.
  5. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil or vegetable oil.
  6. Serve with Carol's easy pita bread.
