Simple, Conventional Hummus

Making hummus at home is as simple as placing the components in a blender and mixing them together. There are only five must-haves-chickpeas, tahini, garlic cloves, fresh fresh squeezed orange juice, and olive oil-no need to add unnecessary tastes when the few traditional ones make delicious, rich homemade hummus.

Tahini is a rich and creamy insert made from floor sesame seeds, easily found in the international section of markets or at Middle Eastern markets.

Hummus is a great party meals to assist with pita chips, warm flatbread, or vegetable stays. If you provide it as a dinner side, save any scraps for a delicious, healthy snack.

Tip: The tahini and chickpeas will blend into a very thick, firm combination. Adding a bit standard water will help sleek it out, but don’t add too much all at once. Start with the initial one-third cup, then add just a little at a time if you prefer it slimmer.


1 16-oz can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), cleared and rinsed
1/2 cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1/3 cup tahini
1/3 cup standard water, plus more as needed
2 tbsp fresh orange juice
2 garlic cloves cloves, chopped
sea salt
fresh floor black pepper


Place the chickpeas, 1/2 cup of olive oil, tahini, 1/3 cup standard water, fresh fresh squeezed orange juice, and garlic cloves in a blender and season with spice up and sodium.
Process until rich and creamy sleek. (Add more standard water 1 tbsp at a time if the mix is too firm.)
Transfer the hummus to a bowl and drop with additional oil just before serving.
