  • 1 can (15 oz) of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Press Farms Classic Olive Oil
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • Water (as needed)
  • Optional toppings: drizzle of olive oil, paprika, chopped parsley


    • In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, cumin, and a pinch of salt.
    • Blend the mixture until it becomes a smooth paste. If the mixture is too thick, add a little water (start with 2 tablespoons) to achieve your desired consistency. Continue blending and adding water as needed.
    • Taste the hummus and adjust the salt, lemon juice, or other seasonings to your preference. If you'd like a creamier texture, you can continue blending for a bit longer.
    • Once the hummus reaches your desired consistency and taste, transfer it to a serving bowl.
    • To serve, create a little well in the center of the hummus using a spoon and drizzle some extra-virgin olive oil into the well. You can also sprinkle some paprika and chopped parsley on top for added flavor and presentation.
    • Serve the hummus with pita bread, vegetable sticks, or crackers. It's also great as a spread on sandwiches or as a dip for various snacks.
    • Leftover hummus can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
