This is a basic hummus recipe that my friend and I came up with. We avoided adding a lot of unnecessary ingredients and enjoy our hummus on the thicker side. It's a good low-fat alternative to the usual hummus recipe. Feel free to add whatever you would like! :-)


  1. Drain and rinse garbanzo beans.
  2. Combine ingredients into food processor or blender.
  3. Add water/lemon juice as needed.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Serve with veggies, chips, pretzels - whatever you would like! Enjoy!

My first time making or eating hummus and I really enjoyed this! I don't care much for cilantro so used some cumin powder instead. I used smoked Spanish paprika and it was terrific in this. Served with thin Triscuits and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2011
