We don’t know anyone who doesn’t like hummus. It’s a creamy delight, and when you dip a warm pita into it, it’s just a dream. If you think it’s hard to make your own hummus, you’re wrong! It’s super simple. Our hummus is done in 5 minutes and only needs a few ingredients.

Preparation

  • Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Dry well. Or cook your own chickpeas from dried.
  • Add the chickpeas to a mixer and blend with the lemon juice, tahini, garlic, cumin, water and a bit of salt. The best tools are an immersion blender or a food processor.
  • Drizzle the hummus with 1 tbsp of olive oil and serve immediately. Keeps in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Enjoy!

Our Tip

Just before serving, use the back of a spoon to press a small dent into the center of the hummus and carefully pour a dollop of olive oil into it. You can also sprinkle it with cumin, paprika, and a bit of fresh parsley. Not only does it look lovely; it also gives the hummus an even more special flavor. Enjoy with vegetable sticks, pita, or a big slice of our Protein Bread.
The secret to perfect hummus
...is all in the tahini (sesame paste) you choose. Along with chickpeas, it's the most important ingredient, giving the hummus its creaminess as well as its characteristic nutty flavor. Tahini is made up of nothing but ground sesame seeds. The grinding process releases the fats inside, which then separates into a layer of oil at the top of the jar (just like you're used to with our Peanut Butter). When you're shopping for your tahini, make sure that sesame seeds are the one and only ingredient.
