Hummus Recipes

I really like hummus, I make it all the time, and I have customized a few different versions that you can find here. I am going to present my recipes here broken up into three parts, part 1 is always the same, but there are different things to do in steps two and three. I break it up like this because I think you should also come up with your own customizations to making hummus and the three part process enables that, but if you want my recipes in a more straight forward format, they will also be their own individual page. The different types of hummus I make are regular, garlic chive, spicy, and truffle.

Ingredients for all variations:

  • 1/4 Cup Tahini
  • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice (or lime juice, or a mix of both)
  • 1 Can Chickpeas
  • 1-2 Tbs Cumin
  • 1 tsp Garlic Salt
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Cloves

Part 1

The starter in all of my hummus recipes is to mix lemon juice and tahini, a quarter cup of each. Simply mix the two in a blender or food processor.

Part 2

The second part is where you add spices and oil. You should use a minimum of 2 garlic cloves here, 2 tbs of olive oil, 2 tbs of cumin, and whatever other ingredients that you want.

Spicy Hummus

2 tsp or more red pepper flakes and a 1 tbs or more of sriracha added at this point is the only customization for this variant.

Truffle Hummus

Replace the regular olive oil with truffle infused olive oil, and then add 2 tsp or more of a truffle spice, I use the Urban Accents Mushroom Truffle Hunt I found on Amazon, I use that one because it is more affordable per jar than actual truffles.

Part 3

Add a whole can of chick peas, I haven’t found there to be really any benefit to preparing your chickpeas from their dried form.

Garlic Chive

In a pan, on medium heat cook the chickpeas, three or four stalks of chopped green onion or garlic chives, and a few cloves of diced garlic until the chives/green onions are brown.
