This is definitely one of my favourites because it is so easy to make and nutritious. The chickpeas are high in proteins and fiber. This prep is from middle east cuisine and there is evidence that even ancient egyptians already made it.

Enjoy this recipe as a dip for your bread, crackers, or such as side dish.



Chickpeas (organic better)

Tahini (Organic better)




Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Cold Water



250 g

2 table spoons

2 Cloves

1 Lemon

1 Tea Spoon

50 ml

80 ml

1 Tea spoon
(adjust according to your taste)
1 Pinch
(adjust according to your taste)


  • The night before, soak the Chickpeas into tap water. (Well, we always can use canned chickpeas to avoid this, but I suggested to use organic grains, and do all the processs. However, nothing bad if you use organic canned ones, it is faster).
  • Boil the Chickpeas during 30 mins aprox, until you can feel nice and edible texture.
  • Rinse the Chickpeas with cold water into a strainer or colander.
  • Blend or Chop the Chickpeas with the Tahini, Garlic, Juice of lemon, Extra virgin olive oil and water. (Using a stick mixer, chopper bowl, or blend).
  • Add salt, pepper, and sumac.
  • Continue blending until smooth texture, if you need more oil and water, do not hesitate, just add little bit more until you reach nice and smooth texture. Also, if you want more lemon, salt, sumac or pepper, just go ahead! Add little bit more and remember, that the prep will be amazing is you enjoy the taste.
  • Serve the hummus into bowls or ramekin, you can garnish with some olive oil, whole chickpeas, and green herbs such as coriander, parsley, or basil.
