Yields 2 cups
Yes, you can buy ready-made hummus from the store. But making hummus from scratch not only saves lots of money but also helps reduce plastic in the environment. It’s a win-win! I also love how customizable it is, too. Add extra garlic or make it more lemony—the choice is totally yours.
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic
1⁄4 cup tahini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt, to taste
- In a food processor or blender, blend all the ingredients on high until completely smooth.
You can save this in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. If the hummus and water start to separate, just give it a good stir.
