Quick and Easy Hummus

Fresh, homemade hummus is incredibly easy to make and can save you a ton of money over the store bought brands. This simple recipe is a perfect starting point that can be easily spiced up to your tastes. One of my favorite things to add is chili paste, like Sambal Oelek.


homemade hummus
  • 15 oz can garbanzo beans, drained (reserving liquid)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. In a blender, combine ingredients in order listed.
  2. On the lowest speed, blend the ingredients while slowly adding the reserved liquid from the can of garbanzo beans, until the desired consistency is reached.
  3. Serve with raw vegetables, pitas, or chips.
