Hummus is a traditional Middle Eastern dish made of chickpeas. I love hummus because it is vegan, very healthy and can be used as a dip for appetizers but can also eaten as part of a lunch or dinner recipe. For this recipe I used homemade tahini. Making tahini is very simple, all you need are roasted sesame seeds, olive oil and salt. I used 6 tbs. for 1/2 cup sesame seeds. You just put all the ingredients in your blender and mix. Of course you can also use store bought tahini. Read more on my blog:


  • 200 gr./ 7 oz. chickpeas from a can, drained and washed.
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbs. tahini
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • Any spices you like
  • Water to make the consistency more liquid


  • STEP 1
    Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix well.
  • STEP 2
    Add as much water as needed to make your hummus the consistency you like.
  • STEP 3
    Put in a container and keep in the fridge for up to a week.
