  • 1 14.5 oz can Chickpeas (aka Garbanzo beans) Rinsed and drained
  • 2 cloves garlic Peeled
  • 2 tbsp Tahini paste
  • 2 tbsp mild flavored olive oil Rafi says to use a "splash." I use big spashes, so 2 tbsp.

  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1-2 ounces water


  • Mix all ingedients except the water in a food processor (or blender/Vitamix, depending on your equipment) for about 30 seconds.
  • If you like your hummus thick, continue mixing for another 1-2 minutes, until smooth, and serve.
  • For creamier hummus, add 1 oz of water and blend for 60 seconds. If desired creaminess has not been achieved, add the remaining 1 oz. of water and continue mixing for another minute.
  • Taste before serving, as you may desire a pinch more salt.
