What is hummus?
Hummus is a chickpea sauce that has its roots in the Middle East. Hummus ingredients are few and simple, including chickpeas (also known as chickpeas) and tahini, seasoned with olive oil, lemon, and garlic.
Chickpeas are mixed with the other ingredients until smooth, perfect for dipping!

Tahini It is a paste (almost like a nut butter) made from sesame seeds. You can usually find cans or jars of tahini in the international food section of your grocery store (or of course on Amazon). Like natural peanut butter, tahini separates into a layer of oil on top and dense solids on the bottom, so you'll have to mix it up before it's ready to use in this recipe.
How to make hummus
This is the best hummus recipe I've ever had and it only requires a blender, no pots or cooking! Here is everything you do:
- Open the can or cans of chickpeas and reserve the liquid.
- Mix all the ingredients, adding the reserved liquid as necessary.
- Place in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with cumin and garnish with parsley
Vary flavors that can include sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers or spinach, and feta cheese, roasted garlic, herb basil pesto, or other favorites!
If you want a softer hummus, you can peel your chickpeas. If we have guests, sometimes I do this, but for the most part I don't find that there is enough difference to bother, as it can be time consuming.
What to eat with hummus
This easy dip is traditionally served with pita bread. Anything you can dip goes well with the garlic hummus. Sliced pita or pita chips, breadsticks or celery sticks, carrot, or sliced bell peppers are also great to serve with homemade hummus.
Hummus wraps can be made by spreading them in a pita and adding grated romaine lettuce, fresh tomato, red onion, and feta cheese.
Can you freeze hummus?
This is the best hummus recipe to freeze. Just load it into freezer-safe containers, leaving an inch for expansion. It will be kept in the freezer for four months. Be sure to allow several hours for it to thaw in the refrigerator.
