Hummus is, by far, one of my favorite snacks. In the summer I serve it with cucumber slices, drizzled with salt and lemon. This is a basic hummus recipe made with Tahini. Enjoy!




16 oz can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans.

1/8 cup liquid from can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans.

5 tablespoons lemon or lime juice (I prefer fresh squeezed, but bottled works just as well)

2 tablespoons Tahini

2 cloves of garlic (crushed)

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2 tablespoons of Olive Oil or Sunflower Oil.

2 tablespoons diced Roma tomatoes.

1 tablespoon sliced green onion.





Drain chickpeas/garbazos and set the liquid aside.

Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend for 1 minute until smooth.

Transfer the puree to a serving dish and create small ridges on top of the hummus.

Top the hummus with Olive/Sunflower Oil and garnish with diced Roma tomatoes and green onion.
