Hummus GF

So, if you haven't gathered by now.....I LOVE MEDITERRANEAN FOOD! I don't remember the exact day I was first introduced to this tastiness, but boy do I love it and it is super good for you! This could be a meal in itself....for me at least lol! I first started buying hummus at the store and it was always hit or miss. You never quite know what you are gonna get. It also costs a pretty penny for such itty bitty containers of it. I decided to boycott store bought hummus and make my own. This recipe makes a ton of hummus. I took it to a party and still had enough leftovers to send some home with 3 people. You could cut it in half if it is just for a few people. eat up!


4 Cans Garbanzo beans/Chick peas
4 Cloves Garlic
2 Lemons juiced
5 Tsp Cumin
1 1/2 Tsp Sea salt
1 C Olive Oil
(you can add 1/3 C tahini if you want to. It does add a nice flavor)


Drain beans and peel garlic. Throw everything into a food processor and puree until a smooth consistency. I like to add a few chives or green onions to the top. Tastes yummy and looks nice. Feta cheese is also a must have with hummus. It makes it! Serve with homemade Naan go here for my whole wheat Naan recipe.


  1. I am pretty sure in my mind you need the roasted red pepper and you need to eliminate the feta....but this is my new go too for when we are needing a quick lunch...oh but how in the world do you eat something made with 4 cans of beans...I made two cans nad didn't finish!

  2. Not personally a fan of the roasted red peppers....and If you woulda read it all silly girl, I made it for a party. I said to half the recipe if it was for just a few people...however, we could probably polish it off in a few days lol!
