  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas , rinsed & drained but reserve 1/4 cup of the liquid to thin out the hummus later
  • 2 large garlic cloves if you have time - roasted garlic is awesome in here
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • sea salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil optional
  • chili flakes for garnish


  1. Place chickpeas in a blender or food processor with garlic, lemon juice, paprika, cumin and reserved liquid from the canned chickpeas.

    Blend or puree until very smooth, adding more liquid or lemon juice as needed to thin out to desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper and add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil to help achieve a super creamy texture, if desired.
