Homemade Hummus

So I made the Tahini for the Baba Ganoush then decided to make hummus. It is actually really easy to make and so good for you loaded with protein, folate, magnesium, and fiber.
It makes a great light meal or snack, its healthy and satisfying.

  • 1 cup of cooked chick pea's (we soaked them over night then pressure cooked them, hubby was making channa dal so I took half!) or a can would also work fine.
  • 3 -4 cloves of garlic
  • olive oil
  • one tablespoon tahini
  • lemon juice
  • salt

  1. simply grind the chick peas, olive oil, salt, lemon juice, garlic and tahini together.
Its that simple, great for dipping and sharing!

Have a great weekend everyone


oh and I also got a Lovely Blog from Art Food and Travel Chronicles from Sheba a great cook and artist from Goa, India, be sure to check out her blog

    i love hummus with some more fiber added to it , spring onions seem to be the best crunch added to it for me...

  10. Beautiful recipe! Adorable photos!

  11. Thank you for this post. Everytime I pick up a container of hummus at Whole Foods I say to myself "why don't you make your own" But then never take the time to look for a recipe.

  20. Homemade is so much better plus it's easy to make.

  23. I love hummus, Rebecca, but we can't have it over the holidays as one of my sons is deathly allergic to it.
    I'll save the recipe for when he's not with the little red tomato in the center!

  24. Congratulations on the award Rebecca!
    Ooh, I love homemade hummus! This recipe sounds delicious!

  25. Mmm, love Hummus. It is a very versatile dip, veggies, fries, and crackers and is also a great spread for sandwiches. Enjoy, my babies love it too! and yes still working on the latte art.

  26. What adorable pictures of your little one!! I love her facial exprssions!

    I love to make hummus and find all sorts of new things to add to it! I found if I use my immersion blender I can make it in a snap with minimal clean up!

  27. I make hummus all the time! I just love it and it's so easy and good for you! Jasmine is such a cutie!

  28. Mmmm. Hummus is such an easy to make staple in our house. But I salute you for making your own tahini and dry chick peas - I bet it is even more wonderful that way.

  29. Barbara: oh wow poor thing being allergic to it, aw well after the holidays oh Jasmine also loves cherry tomatoes
    catherine: thanks so much
    Megan: oh I am so putting it on sandwiches smiles
    Lyndsey: oh thats what I did clever minds think a like lol

  31. This looks fabulous. I must embark on the hummus at home adventure. I love hummus :)

  32. Is that your daughter? She is adorable! Haha, she's a much better kid than I was...I definitely would not have been willing to eat hummus then!

  35. How cute is your babe?!

    I want to make one of these Sundays dedicated to making healthy snack food like this so I stop munching on all the Christmas treats. Looks yummy!

  36. Diana: thanks so much for stopping by
    unplanned cooking: thanks so much, I know this time of year is tough lol

  37. I love hummus. I haven't made it in years. I used to make when I moved to MN because it didn't exist here back in the day. Looks great.

  38. Jasmine enjoying so much huh! 'm sure it tastes fantastic!

  39. Aw such cute cute pictures! Hope you had a great time back in England!

  40. my little space: smiles
    Ruth oh it was wonderful to go home thanks for asking

  41. I've never made hummus before. I always thought it'd be easier to just buy it from Trader Joe's. But since you made it look so easy... I might just try it.

  42. Love this hummus! Baby Jasmine looks adorable :D
