Garlic Homemade Hummus

Sharing is caring!

The deliciousness of freshly whipped-up hummus is undeniable! Sure, the store bought stuff is a nice substitute in a pinch, but when you have the choice, treat yourself to this homemade version. Right away you’ll notice two things: first, it tastes amazingly fresh! Second, you’ll end up with about twice as much hummus than if you were to simply buy a container.

So without further ado, here is my easy, go-to recipe for homemade hummus that can be made in ten minutes or less!

1. First, draw 3 T. of the liquid from a can of garbanzo beans and add it to your food processor. Then, drain the rest of the liquid off, rinse your beans, and add them to the processor, as well.

2. Add the remaining 6 ingredients to a food processor in the order they are listed and blend for one minute.

3. Next, scrape the sides of the bowl, add 1-2 tablespoons of water if needed, and blend again for two minutes.

4. That’s all there is to it! Spoon out your fresh hummus into a storage container and place in the fridge until ready to eat.

If you want to make your hummus super special, just before serving, top it with a light drizzle of olive oil and a good sprinkling of either za’atar or paprika. Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice that goes scrumptiously with hummus. I picked some up in Israel while on Jeff’s world tour a few years ago, and we savored every spec until it was gone!

Rumor has it, by the way, that you can find za’atar in Trader Joe’s…

I hope you love this hummus as much as I do!
