How to Make Easy Hummus at Home

  1. Rinse and drain the garbanzo beans and place them in the bowl of a food processor.
  2. Add the lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and tahini. Pulse and puree until smooth. Add salt and pepper and continue to process. Taste for seasoning and more of anything that is needed. For a thinner, smoother hummus, add water or more tahini, a little at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
  3. Serve the hummus with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika if desired. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
