Yields 2 cups


2 (15 oz) cans chick peas

3 Tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 Tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed

2 Tbsp Tahini Paste*

1 tsp salt


Drain the chick peas, discarding the liquid. Place all ingredients in a blender (or beaker for an immersion blender) and blend to a smooth paste.

Hummus Prep


Serve with toasted pita bread.


Pita bread

Olive oil

Provence herbs or Italian herbs blend

Cut the pita bread into wedges. Place on a baking tray and drizzle with a little olive oil. Sprinkle with herbs. Toast under the broiler for a few minutes.


* For super easy hummus, substitute 1½ teaspoons of pure sesame oil instead of tahini paste. It is not as tasty as the homemade tahini paste, but it works in a pinch.
