MEarth Home Kitchen Presents: Hummus

Hummus Recipe


  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas, drained (1.5 cups uncooked chickpeas) (2 cans of chickpeas)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup tahini
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp or more salt to taste
  • Sumac, paprika, olive oil as topping


  1. OPTIONAL: For a very smooth hummus, add chickpeas to hot water with 1 tsp baking soda, stir, and let sit for a minute or so. Run under water a handful at a time to remove skins
  2. Add chickpeas to food processor with garlic and pulse until smooth, powdery paste forms.
  3. With food processor still running, add in ice cubes, tahini, lemon juice, and salt until fully incorporated and a smooth, creamy paste is formed.
  4. If too thick, add in a small amount of hot water if needed. If not salty enough, add more to taste.
  5. Spoon out into a bowl, making a small well in the middle.
  6. Drizzle in olive oil and top with sumac and paprika if desired.
  7. Serve with seasonal vegetables.
