The Hummus in this recipe is a lot less lumpy and more flavourful than the store bought stuff.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a Blender (NOT a Food Processor).
  2. Add chick peas, garlic, lemon juice, salt, cayenne, cumin, and 1/2 quantity of chickpea water, blend.
  3. You will probably have to stir manually a couple of times (when the blender is off!).
  4. Add Tahini and blend again, when finished the Hummus should be able to just start to slide out of the blender on its own.
  5. If too thick add a little more chickpea water.
  6. Pour into a shallow bowl, drizzle with Olive Oil, and sprinkle parsley on top.
  7. Cut up Pita Bread into bite size pieces, serve with Hummus.
  8. Enjoy.

Great flavors. I loved the cumin and the bit of a zing from the cayenne. I still got a few lumps from chickpeas that just would not be ground up, but I think that is just the design of my blender; it was still quite smooth and fluffy.

This is the first time I've made hummus. Try putting into tuna for a tuna salad sandwish instead of mayonnaise. With it's high rate of calcium and good fibre, hummus is a excellent food choice.

Of all the variations on Hummus, this one has just the right blend of flavors I'm looking for. Great and simple recipe!
