Easy Hummus

July 20, 2011

When it’s hot it can be hard to get motivated to cook. I pass no judgement on those who eat chips and salsa, crackers and cheese, or hummus and pita for dinner. Or cereal. I’m guilty of all of those. This hummus recipe takes only a few minutes to make. Serve with pita wedges or fresh veggies.


1 15oz can chickpeas, rinsed

1 clove garlic

¼ C olive oil, plus extra for serving

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tbsp tahini (this is sesame seed paste)

1 tsp cumin


¼ tsp paprika

In your food processor, blend all ingredients (except paprika) together. Keep pulsing until it’s nice and creamy. Add water if you need to thin it out.

Transfer to serving bowl, drizzle with oil and top with paprika.
