Hummus, a go to snack, lunch, or dinner!  I love serving hummus at any get together.  It is so versatile and can be served with vegetables, crackers, crostini, or as an added layer to a sandwich or burger.  It is so simple and delicious!


1  15 oz can of organic chickpeas, drained (save the liquid)

2   Tablespoons tahini

1   garlic clove, peeled and chopped

Juice from 1/2 organic lemon

2   Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/4 +   teaspoon ground cumin  (I add a bit more because I love cumin)

Dash of cayenne pepper

Sea Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

For Serving: chopped fresh parsley or cilantro, smoked paprika, pine nuts, and extra virgin olive oil



Drain chickpeas, reserving the liquid, and place in a food processor or blender with the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, cumin, and cayenne.

Puree until smooth.  If too thick, add some of the reserved chickpea liquid until desired thickness has been reached.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Before serving, garnish with the chopped parsley or cilantro, smoked paprika, pine nuts, and olive oil.

Serve with vegetables, tortilla chips, crostini, or crackers!
