Homemade Hummus, A Perfect Appitizer

homemade hummus

Honestly, Homemade Hummus tastes much better than the one bought from the store. It is very easy to make with the food processor. It’s all about how you add ingredients in the food processor. I didn’t have tahini so I used the paste of sesame seeds along with the chickpea puree and olive oil, of course. Moreover, I would suggest if you use a natural sweetened creamy peanut butter as well.

[directions title=”Directions”]

  1. Combine the tahini and lemon juice in the food processor for a minute. Process it until creamy like, making the hummus smooth.
  2. Now, add olive oil, garlic, cumin and ½ tb salt in the creamy mixture. Process it for 40 seconds until well blended.
  3. On the other hand, open, drain and rinse the chickpeas. Add half of the chickpeas in the processor and process it until thick and quite smooth. This will take 1-2 minutes.
  4. If you see that the hummus is too thick or have tiny bits of chickpea in it, slowly add 2-3 tbs of water and process until it reaches the perfect consistency.
  5. Add salt, if needed and serve hummus with a drizzle of olive oil and grounded paprika.
