How to Make Hummus

Gather the Ingredients

500 gr of chickpeas
¼ cup of lemon juice
½ crushed garlic clove
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 tablespoons of water
Salt & pepper (to your liking)
Extras (add sesame seeds, bell pepper, olives, or other ingredients if you want).

Get Ready

Before getting started, you need to rinse the garbanzo beans (or chickpeas) with plenty of water and peel the skin off (or you can leave the skin on if you want).

Mix, Mix, Mix!

Now, it's time to get blending! Start adding all the ingredients into the blender and mix it well until you see that it's becoming a dense, homogenous paste.

Get a Taste

The ultimate test is here! Now that your creation is done, grab a spoon, and give it a taste. If you feel like it's missing something, add it up and mix again until it tastes to your liking.


Your minutes of hard work have culminated in a delicious hummus. You only have to serve it in a bowl, place some delicious toast or veggies around, and enjoy!
