Classic Hummus Recipe

A bowl of hummus topped with chickpeas surrounded by vegetables and pita bread.

This classic hummus recipe can be made in 5 minutes and use simple ingredients that result in a creamy dip.




  1. Place chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and salt in your food processor and pulse.
  2. While still pulsing, pour water in through the top one tablespoon at a time. Continue pulsing for 3 full minutes, which will result in a creamier texture.
  3. Top hummus with olive oil and spices of choice (cumin, smoked paprika, fresh herbs, etc.)
  4. Enjoy!
