Homemade Hummus

No comments :

If you’re a lover of hummus, then I’ve got news for you... it’s super easy to make and for a fraction of the cost that you’d pay for the store bought variety.


Lemon Juice
Tahini (Sesame Seeds ground into a creamy spread)
Seasonings (Salt, lemon pepper, cumin, turmeric, chili powder, etc.)

There are a ton of recipes out there but the gist of em goes like this:

Step 1- Prep the Chickpeas:

If you opt for raw garbanzos aka chickpeas, you’ll have to prep them like you would beans for chili. If you go the fast route, you just need to set them in boiling water (turn the heat off beforehand, you’re not actually cooking them yet) for ~30min, allow to cool for an hour, then cook for ~45min on medium-high heat. Drain and set aside.

Step 1 - [Alt]:

Just buy canned chickpeas... they’re cheap. Cook for ~45min on medium-high heat. Drain and set aside.

Step 2- Tahini Time:

Essentially you’re just lightly (and I mean the lowest setting on your stove) toasting some sesame seeds and tossing them into a food processor with some oil. You want this to come out silky smooth, so only add oil as needed. The sesame seeds do not need to change color to be done, they just need to give off a faint aroma. If you burn em, toss em- the taste will dramatically worsen if you use burnt tahini

Step 3- Processsss Poooweeer:

Throw everything into a blender, food processor, fruit ninja (?)- whatever ok. Add water and/or oil as needed to get to the desired consistency.

Step 4- Impressions:

Voila, all done! Store in fridge for added texture or start snacking right away, your choice. Garnish with some roasted chili peppers, a little honey, or some diced up veggies.

It’s honestly one of the easiest things to make and takes an average of 12min to make if you prep the chickpeas ahead of time.
