Hummus has been one of favourite dishes growing up and it used to be complimented with Ful Medames (recipe coming soon) for dinner. Moving away for college, I always stocked up my dorm fridge on Sabra Hummus from the grocery store. It was something I had to settle with, but not any more and neither do you. My recipe below is the quickest way to prepare humus and it enables you to have it fresh every time  you want to have it.

Cuisine: Middle Eastern

Total Time: 15 min

Serves: 2-4 people


1 can of Garbanzo beans (Chickpeas)

2 Cloves Garlic

3 tbsp. lemon juice

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tbsp. Tahini

1 tsp. Salt

Red Chilli Powder (garnishing)


1. In a blender, chop the garlic. Pour garbanzo beans into blender, reserving about a tablespoon for garnish. Place lemon juice, tahini, chopped garlic and salt in blender. Blend until creamy and well mixed.

2. Transfer the mixture to a medium serving bowl. Sprinkle with pepper and pour olive oil over the top. Garnish with reserved garbanzo beans.

Best served with Fresh Wheat Pita Bread from your local bakery.

If you would like to spice it up, you can add green chillies/red chilli flakes/paprika  into the blender along with the beans.
