Hummus Dip

A delicious hummus dip recipe.


  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans) or 19-ounce can (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup tahini * (sesame paste)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Put chickpeas, garlic, olive oil, cumin and tahini in a food processor and process. Once it starts to reach the desire texture start slowly adding the lemon juice and process until you have a nice paste for dipping. Then salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for two hours before serving.

* Tahini is the equivalent of peanut butter but made with sesame seeds instead of peanuts. In a pinch, you can try this recipe with peanut butter, but it won't be as good.

Once you have made this a couple times you will get a good feel for how much salt, pepper and lemon juice you prefer.
