Making hummus yourself is extremely easy when you follow my easy homemade hummus recipe.  You don’t even have to cook anything!  The only tasks you need to do are opening a can of chickpeas, peeling a garlic clove, squeezing a lemon and pressing button of the food processor :)

This homemade hummus is made in a food processor, so the food processor does all the work for you.  Just put the hummus ingredients in the food processor, press a button, and the homemade hummus is ready!

  1. Looks like a great hummus. Do you find that it can sometimes get a little thick without adding water? I find it depends on how thin the tehina is (it can get thick at the bottom of the jar).
