Learn how to make Hummus with this easy, authentic recipe!
Pulse garlic clove in a food processor until minced.
Scrape down sides of food processor, then add chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, and salt to taste. Blend until totally smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes. If needed, add a little water (or liquid from canned chickpeas) to thin the hummus out.
Taste and adjust seasoning with additional salt and/or lemon juice, if desired. Transfer hummus to a bowl, then drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with paprika (optional).
Serve with veggies, pita bread, pita chips, and/or crackers. Enjoy!
To Make Hummus Without Tahini:
Replace tahini with 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon cumin. Prepare as directed. You can also use sesame oil instead of olive oil for more sesame flavor.
