Basic Hummus Recipe

1 Can Chickpeas, drained and rinsed with outer skin removed
1 Tablespoon Tahini Paste
1 Clove Garlic
Juice of one lemon (equivalent of 3 tablespoons)
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
Rice Bran Oil*
Salt to taste


1) Drain and rinse the chickpeas then remove the outer skin by holding the chickpea between your forefinger and thumb and gently squeezing**
2) Add all ingredients excluding the oil to a blender or food processor & pulse
3) Using a spatula, scrape down the side of the blender, add a small amount of oil and pulse
4) Continue to repeat Step 3 until the hummus is at desired consistency, add salt to taste if required
5) Serve immediately dressed with paprika and oil***


* Rice Bran Oil is my preferred for this recipe as it has a mild flavour however you can substitute Olive Oil if desired

** It is not necessary to remove the outer skin of the chickpeas however, the final result is a smoother hummus

*** If not serving immediately, transfer to an airtight container with a layer of oil on the top of the hummus and refrigerate; the layer of oil will assist in preserving the hummus
