This spreadable delight is a crowd-pleaser. It is versatile and can be used as a dip or a spread and you can craft it to highlight multiple flavors.


1/3 cup tahini

2-4 TB cold water


1/2 tsp ground cumin

3/4 tsp salt

3-4 cloves garlic (peeled)

2-3 TB lemon juice (roughly 1 lemon squeezed)

1 - 15oz can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained

**paprika and fresh herbs for topping


In a food processor or blender at tahini, water, EVOO, cumin, salt, garlic, and lemon juice. Puree on high until smooth. This step whips the tahini and will help ensure your hummus is creamy.
