Traditional Hummus

This has been my go-to hummus recipe for awhile now and I make it often. There is nothing better than creamy delicious hummus and this recipe yields just that. Serve it with pita or vegetables for the perfect afternoon snack. I usually double the recipe for company or just to have lots of extra throughout the week. I usually find tahini in either the ethnic section of the grocery store or near the peanut butter.



Ingredients:
3 tbsp. juice from 1-2 lemons
¼ cup water
6 tbsp. tahini, stirred well
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
1 (14 oz.) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 small garlic clove
¼ tsp. table salt, plus more to taste
¼ tsp. ground cumin
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tbsp. minced fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)
Paprika, for garnish

Directions:
Process chickpeas, garlic, salt, cumin, and cayenne in a food processor until almost fully ground. Scrape down sides of bowl. With the machine running, add lemon juice and water through the feeding tube. Process for about 1 minute, then scrape down bowl.

Whisk together olive oil and tahini in a small bowl. Add oil-tahini mixture to the food processor while it is running in a steady stream. Continue processing until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Taste and adjust salt and lemon juice as needed. I often add a little extra of either or both.

Transfer hummus to a bowl and let stand for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld or transfer to the refrigerator to keep for longer. When ready to serve, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with parsley and paprika, if desired.

I may have to give hummus another try soon. I love it, but I got totally turned off to cumin from a quinoa salad recipe that I was eating for a couple days and I've been weary to eat it again since then.

Hummus is one of those things that varies from kitchen to kitchen, which is one reason it's such a beautiful thing to share with others. A lovely photo, too!

Hi Christina -- Gorgeous photos, as always!

Am I the only one in the world who finds canned chickpeas a little, um, fishy? In your recipe, does the lemon and the 30 minute rest time take care of that? Using canned chickpeas is so much more convenient, but I've found that I'm happiest with my homemade hummus if I use dried chickpeas rehydrated in the slow cooker. But I would LOVE to try an easier way, if your recipe eliminates the problem.

Hope all is well!

xoxo,

@Tanja @ Postmodern Hostess I have never thought of canned chickpeas as fishy so I am not sure. I use the organic ones and always thoroughly drain and rinse them. Maybe it is the brand that you are using? The 30 minute rest time helps the flavors incorporate but, honestly, I usually can't wait and eat it right away!

I have never tried hummus from dried chickpeas so I can't tell you any taste differences from experience but I have heard that the canned chickpeas yield a creamier hummus. It is definitely a lot quicker so I hope you find some chickpeas that aren't fishy!

Mmm...I love hummus. I tried making my own once before, and it didn't come out so great. I'll have to try this recipe. I also just saw the avocado hummus on the side...that looks delicious too!

Oh my goodness. It's one in the morning, and I should be going to bed, but instead I'm looking at your delicious food and my stomach is grumbling - because, well, there's NOTHING better than hummus - it's totally one of my favorite, favorite foods! I (surprisingly!) have all the ingredients for this, and will totally be making it in the morning!
