  • 1 garlic clove
  • 0.5 lemon (only the juice)
  • 60 ml (or less) water

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • paprika for garnish

Classic chickpeas hummus Directions

  1. Place drained chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice and a few tablespoons of water in a food processor fitted with a blade attachment and blend until smooth. Add more water if you want it more liquid and adjust salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Transfer to a bowl, pour some olive oil on top, add a dash of paprika and sesame seeds and serve. Hummus gets tastier after a few hours when the flavors are able to mix.

    lot of love. B.
