  • 15 oz garbanzo beans (1 can) rinsed and drained
  • 2 heaping tablespoons tahini paste
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon light olive oil or canola oil, use a light flavored oil
  • salt & pepper

dipping option-

  • vegetables
  • pita
  • bagel
  • chips
  • anything else you want to dip


  • Pour all ingredients into food processor. Pulse until desired consistency is reached. (I like mine thick with a little texture, so it didn't take me long to get there. If you want more of a smooth consistency, add in 1-2 more tablespoons oil and keep processing!)
  • Serve with vegetables, or pita. Store in refrigerator for up to 5 days in an airtight container.


The garlic flavor becomes stronger the longer the hummus sits. So, at first when you make this, you may not taste a strong flavor, however, the next day you will, so beware! Don't be like me and think there isn't enough and add in 2 extra garlic cloves! (Calorie information is for the hummus, not additional dipping items.)
