Easy Creamy Hummus

Easy Creamy Hummus

Hello friends.  With all the busyness of summer I’ve been absent from this blog for a little over a month, but I’ve really missed it.  I hope you’re having a great summer.

Today I have a simple, delicious recipe to share with you.

I love the creamy hummus that Mediterranean restaurants serve.  I’ve been making this hummus recipe fairly often over the last 12 months or so and I think it rivals good restaurant hummus – and it’s so much better than store-bought.  It’s super smooth and flavorful and makes a great snack or lunch – we like to dip tortilla or pita chips, pita bread, and sometimes sliced up veggies.  I love how easy this is to make – just throw everything in a food processor and process to your desired creaminess.

Easy Creamy Hummus


  • One 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (you can also use bottled, but fresh tastes better)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Paprika, sprinkled over the top for serving


  1. Place all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor.
  2. Process to your desired creaminess.
  3. Spoon the hummus onto a plate or into a bowl for serving.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil (about 1 tablespoon) and sprinkle with paprika. (As you can tell from the above picture, we like a lot of paprika.)
