  • 2 cups freshly boiled or canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • 1/4 cup chickpea liquid (aquafaba), or slightly more as needed
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of 1 large lemon
  • 5-6 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 tsp cumin powder
  • salt to taste
  • paprika, olive oil, olives, pomogranate arils, pumpkin seeds etc, to garnish


  1. Add all the mentioned ingredients except those mentioned 'to garnish' into your blender and attach the lid nicely.

  2. Run the blender on full power for 30-40 seconds. You can add some more of the reserved chickpea liquid (aquafaba) or water to correct the consistency if the hummus looks thick or dry.

  3. Add the prepared hummus into a serving plate/ bowl and drizzle olive oil, some paprika. I like adding some pomegranate arils and some crunchy pumpkin seeds. And some sliced olives if you like them too.

Recipe Notes

This hummus keeps well in the refrigerator for 5-6 days in an airtight glass container.
