Living the Hummus Life

Hummus is delicious, nutritious, healthy and cheap. On top of that it’s simple to make! Try this at home and replace that expensive store-bought version with your own recipe.


1/4 cup tahini

1 can chickpeas, drained but retain the liquid (aquafaba)

2 TBS olive oil (more to top)

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp sesame oil

1 or 2 tsp minced garlic, to taste

½ tsp cumin

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

Paprika to top

* In a food processor, blend tahini until smooth.

* Add beans, oil, lemon juice, sesame oil and spices, blend until beans begin breaking down, 2 minutes.

* Continue blending, add aquafaba, if needed, a little at a time until desired thickness is reached.

Serve with bread, crackers, vegetables, as a sandwich spread, as a pasta sauce.

Try different seasonings: replace cumin with dill, oregano, chili powder

Try no oil and all aquafaba

Try yogurt instead of oil and aquafaba
