Ingredients

  • 15 oz can chickpeas drained, rinsed and skins removed
  • 1/2 cup tahini

  1. Remove the skins from the chickpeas.*

  2. Add the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, smoked paprika, salt & pepper to a food processor. Blend on high, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. 

  3. If the hummus is too thick, add water or additional olive oil and blend again until the desired consistency is reached.

Recipe Notes

*You don't have to do this step, but I highly, HIGHLY, recommend it for a creamier hummus.

**This will keep in the fridge for 5 days.
