Humus without Tahini



  • 1 can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
  • 2-4 tablespoons of water
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • ¾ teaspoon of ground cumin

  • ¼ – ½ teaspoon of salt


Add the garbanzo beans, 2 tablespoons of the water, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, and ¼ teaspoon of salt to a food processor and blend until creamy. If needed, you can add more water to thin the hummus or add more salt to taste. Top with olive oil, sea salt, or fresh herbs, if desired.
