How to Make Hummus
Hummus is a spread or dip that goes well with a lot of things, like crackers, carrots, pita bread, and more. Although it can be found in stores, it’s quite easy to make at home, and it’s even more delicious. 5-Minute Crafts has a great homemade hummus recipe that will make your mouth water.
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 1/4 cup of tahini
- 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
- 1 fresh garlic clove
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- Salt to taste
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of water
- A dash of ground paprika or sumac for serving
Drain and rinse 1 can of chickpeas.
Remove the chickpeas’ skin to make the hummus really smooth. If you don’t mind the hummus being slightly thicker (but still smooth), you can skip this step.
Add 1/4 cup of tahini to a food processor.
Add 1/4 cup of lemon juice to the food processor.
Turn on the food processor for one minute.
After waiting for one minute, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and process for 30 seconds more.
Add one clove of minced garlic to the food processor.
Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the food processor.
Turn the processor on for one minute, ensuring everything is mixed, then scrape the bowl again.
Add the chickpeas to the food processor. Do it in 2 batches and scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl a few times to make sure everything is being mixed. This should take around 1 to 2 minutes.
Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water to the hummus so it becomes smoother.
The hummus is now ready to be served. You can add things to the top, like extra olive oil, paprika, garlic, pine nuts, feta cheese, olives, more chickpeas, and so on.
