  • 15oz Can 1 - Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)
  • 1/3 Cup - Tahini (ground sesame seeds)
  • 2 Tsp - Cumin
  • 1 Tsp - Salt
  • 2 Tbsp - Olive oil
  • 1-2 - Lemons
  • Cloves 2 - Garlic

Juice the lemon, crush the garlic and place all ingredients in a food processor. Process on high for 1-2 minutes. Serve with crackers or pita chips.


For a variation, use a can of prepared black beans. Strain (but don't rinse) the beans, and use half the lemon juice (since black beans are wetter than garbanzo beans.)

This is not authentic hummus. Cumin should NOT be included. Black beans? 🤦🏻‍♀️That is not even hummus!
