    If you love hummus but have never made it from scratch, you have to try this. It's simple to make and tastes more fresh than the store bought kind. All you need is a few key ingredients and you'll be on your way.

    • 10 minutes
    • Serves 4
    • Easy




    Summers in Arizona make me crave light, cool and tasty foods.  This hummus fits that bill perfectly.  It’s quick and easy to make (i.e. it doesn’t heat up my kitchen) and it multi-tasks.  We use it to dip mini-sweet peppers, cucumbers, carrots, crackers and pita bread.  A little bit goes a long way so I can and do take it to work with me and then snack while I’m doing whatever I need to do.

    You can also use it as a spread on pita bread or in tortillas.  Just add chicken or even steak and you have a quick, filling and healthy lunch.  The hummus will last for about 2 weeks in the refrigerator, but it never does because I eat it all without any guilt.

    Let's Do This!

    Add everything EXCEPT the water to a large food processor. Pulse a few times, then use the high setting for approximately 1 - 2 minutes to combine and puree everything.


    After about 1.5 minutes you'll notice that the hummus is smooth, but thick. With the lid on and the processor running, slowly add water a few tablespoons at a time until the hummus is at the consistency you prefer.


    Pour hummus into your serving dish, drizzle with olive oil and garnish with paprika or chopped parsley. Refrigerate.

    Serve with warmed, sliced pita bread, vegetables or crackers. This is also an excellent spread to use when making chicken wraps.
