Homemade Hummus

Homemade Hummus

Yesterday I decided to use up some of my many canned beans I had in my pantry from when this whole Corona thing started. I used to make my own homemade hummus all the time and I had some carrots and crackers around as well, so I thought I’d make some and actually measure things out so I could share the recipe with you all! Plus, I’m sure you are looking for something to do with all those beans you have purchased in the past couple of weeks. 😉

The beauty of making this is the minimal list of ingredients.

The great thing about making your own hummus is that it is so easy and you can basically add whatever you want to get the flavors you are looking for. I am going to give you a basic recipe for just some good ol’ plain hummus (with some garlic, of course) and let you decide what you want to add to it to spice it up.

An easy to make snack dip that you can alter however you’d like to get the flavor you are looking for. 

  • Author: Dawn


  • 2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 TBL olive oil (or more to taste)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced or chopped
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1/41/2 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste


Put all of your ingredients in a food processor and mix well to combine.  You may have to add more water to get the consistency that you like.  That’s the beauty of this recipe.  You can mix and add all you like.  It’s very forgiving.


Here comes the fun part.  Have a favorite hummus flavor that you want to try?  Go ahead and give it a go.  Add whatever you may like to this basic recipe!  Yesterday I added some chopped sundried tomatoes.  I’ve also roasted some peppers and added those in for a roasted red pepper hummus.  Another favorite is swapping out one of the cans of garbanzo beans for a can of black beans and adding some mexican spices to make a tasty and spicy mexican hummus.  

And yes, Shafer got to eat the carrot after the photo shoot 😉
