Classic from-scratch Hummus

Posted by Cook Culture on

Classic From Scratch Hummus

"Cook up our creamy Kabuli chickpeas and keep them on hand for recipes like this. This classic pared down hummus needs no alteration."


2 cups cooked GRAIN Kabuli Chickpeas
1/4 cup sesame tahini
3-4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil
up to 1/4 cup water
1 clove fresh garlic
1/4 tsp cayenne powder


Combine all ingredients except the water in your blender or food processor and start blending. Add the water as the blender is running until you get a nice smooth texture. Transfer to a serving bowl or container and keep in the fridge until ready to use.

Dress this up by adding greens, roasted garlic, olives, sundried tomatoes or roasted peppers. We like it plain jane, but you really can't go wrong.
