A simple, delicious, all purpose homemade hummus. Great for dipping or spreading in a pita pocket with veggies!


  • 1 15 oz. can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 4 Tbls. Tahini
  • 4 Tbls. lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. coriander
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Palmful of fresh parsley
  • 1/81/4 C. olive oil


  1. Drain garbanzo beans (no need to rinse beans). Place in food processor with remaining ingredients except olive oil. Slowly pour olive oil in while processing. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.


I start with 1 clove garlic and add a second one if it’s not too strong. It’s always easier to add more garlic if your first clove isn’t enough.

You can also use dried parsley, just use about a tablespoon.
