A super creamy, bright homemade hummus in 5 minutes!


  • 1 1/2 cups chick peas, rinsed and drained (crock pot or store bought)
  • 2 tablespoons water (or reserved liquid from chick peas)
  • 1 1/2 tablespooons lemon juice (use less or more, to your liking)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Dump all your ingredients in a food processor and mix until smooth and super creamy. No really, that’s all! You can add extra water if you want to thin it out a bit more.
  2. Serve with fresh cut veggies, pita bread, crackers, pretzels - whatever you like! Or use it as a sandwich spread. Delicious!
