  • 2 15 ounce cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • Juice of 1 small lemon (seeds removed, pulp optional)
  • 1 tablespoon good olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame paste, you can find it in the “international” aisle in the grocery store or more
  • cheaply in a middle eastern specialty shop)
  • 2 small or one large clove of garlic, finely grated
  • Water to adjust consistancy
  • Sweet hungarian paprika to garnish
  • A strong blender or food processor.


1. Drain and wash the chickpeas, add to blender or food processor.
2. Add grated garlic, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, and about 2 tablespoons of water.
3. Puree until there are no whole chickpeas, and the hummus is a thick paste.
4. Remove from bowl of mixer and garnish with a sprinkle of paprika. You could drizzle some olive oil and toss some chopped tomatoes on top of it if you desire. Serve with pita bread!
