Garlic Hummus

This is super duper easy to make, and tastes so much better than the store-bought stuff!


  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 15 oz. can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons tahini paste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon tamari
  • 1/4 cup cool water
  • Salt to taste


  • Combine the oil, garlic, and cumin in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium until garlic is soft but not browned (about 5 minutes).
  • Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until uniform.
  • Serve topped with more olive oil, and a dash of Paprika if you like. I enjoy it with warm pita bread.
