Hummus is very easy to make, typically, it’s chickpeas, garlic, lemon, olive oil and tahini (sesame seed paste) mashed or blended into a paste.

I personally like the expedience of a blender/food processor and to add a very non-traditional ingredient: mayonnaise, to make it smoother.


Amount Ingredient Notes
1 can (16 oz.) chickpeas, drained
2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 lemon, juiced
1-2 cloves garlic depending on their size
2 tablespoons tahini or sesame oil
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted you can toast sesame seed by putting them over heat in a dry pan until golden brown
1 tablespoon cumin
¼ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon salt or to taste
