Homemade Hummus is thick and creamy chickpea spread which is a popular dish from Middle East served as an appetizer and a spread on the wraps.
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Middle Eastern
  • 2 cups drained well-cooked or canned chickpeas
  • ⅓ cup tahini, or adjust per taste
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves peeled garlic, or to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon, plus more as needed
  • Salt per taste
  • Ground black pepper per taste
  • 1-1.5 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • Chopped fresh parsley leaves for garnish
  1. Soak the chickpeas overnight.  Boil them with salt until soft.  Set aside to cool them down.  You can make it with canned chickpeas too but I suggest to soak them.
  2. Now remove hull out of the chickpeas one by one.   It is a little time consuming but worth the effort to get smooth hummus.  Put the chickpeas, tahini, cumin, oil, garlic and lemon juice in a food processor, sprinkle with salt and pepper and begin to process. Add water or if you have left over chickpea reserve as needed to make the paste.
  3. Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more salt, pepper or lemon juice as needed. Serve, drizzled with some olive oil and sprinkled with paprika and some parsley.
