Homemade Hummus

I’ve been procrastinating on this recipe for a while now but I finally got around to making some hummus!

It’s super easy, healthy, and delicious!! This is a large batch because I made some for my brother to enjoy as well but just modify the amount to best suit your preference 🙂


Let’s get to it!


  • 1 lb Garbanzo beans
  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • Two lemons
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoons of cumin
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 minced red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/4 purified water


Rinse the garbanzo beans and add them to the blender, or food processor, along with the rest of the ingredients. Be sure to squeeze the lemon juice in a separate bowl if you don’t have a lemon squeezer, then add the lemon juice to the rest of the ingredients, you don’t want seeds in your hummus! 🙂

Blend until you reach the consistency you like. ***If it’s still too thick you can add one to two table spoons of water at a time.

Once you’re done blending add it to a bowl and sprinkle a bit of paprika on top. Garbanzo beans are a great source of protein! This is great with pita, as a sandwich spread, and a dip with raw veggies! I like mine with carrots and broccoli.

I hope you all enjoyed this delicious recipe! Enjoy!
