Easy Authentic Hummus

Course: Salads & Sides


  • 3 cups chickpeas
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • 1/3 cup tahini paste
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sumac


  • Add chickpeas and minced garlic to the bowl of a food processor. Puree until a smooth, powder-like mixture forms.
  • While processor is running, add ice cubes, tahini, salt, and lemon juice. Blend for about 4 minutes or so. Check, and if the consistency is too thick still, run processor and slowly add a little hot water. Blend until you reach desired silky smooth consistency.
  • Spread in a serving bowl and add a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Add a few chickpeas to the middle, if you like. Sprinkle sumac on top. Enjoy with warm pita wedges and your favorite veggies.
