Hummus is one of my favorite Middle Eastern meals, I’ve never made it before. This is the first time I made it and I was actually proud of myself. Aside of it being a little thick than expected, it tastes delicious. I am not gonna lie It does seem hard but it actually is very easy to make. This recipe was inspired by Minimalist Baker, my favorite food blogger. Check it out.


  • 1 15-ounce well-cooked or canned chickpeas, liquid reserved
  • 1/2 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • 1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus oil for drizzling
  • 2 or 4 cloves garlic, peeled, or to taste
  • Salt and ground cumin or paprika for to taste
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus a sprinkling for garnish
  • Juice of 2 table spoons fresh lemon juice
  • Chopped fresh parsley leaves for garnish


  1. Put everything except the parsley in a food processor and begin to process; add the chickpea liquid or water as needed to allow the machine to produce a smooth puree.
  2. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve, drizzled with the olive oil and sprinkled with a bit more cumin or paprika and some parsley.
