Hummus (Easy!)


This hummus is extremely easy and goes well with everything – vegetable sticks, pita, pretzel crackers, or in sandwich wraps. I always have a jar of minced garlic in the fridge for when I get cravings for snacks like this. This recipe makes about 3-4 cups of hummus, so cut it in half if you don’t want leftovers.


  • 2 (14 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tbs finely chopped parsley or dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 14 grinds from a pepper mill
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil (optional)
  • Paprika for garnish


Put all of the ingredients (minus the paprika) in a blender or food processor and pulse until you get the desired consistency. Add a little extra olive oil if the hummus seems too thick and stir with a wooden spoon if needed. Top with a sprinkle of paprika before serving.
