  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas drained
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic dry toasted
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • kosher salt to taste


  1. In a small, non-stick skillet over medium heat add the unpeeled cloves of garlic and dry toast them, shaking the skillet occasionally, until browned - about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Peel skin and press through a garlic press.

  2. After draining the chickpeas, pick through them to remove any visible skins. Don't spend a lot of time doing this - just remove the ones that have already fallen off.

  3. Add the drained chickpeas, water, olive oil and juice from the 1/2 lemon to the bowl of a small food processor and pulse until well blended.

  4. Add the toasted garlic, parsley, cumin, paprika and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt. Puree until smooth. Taste the hummus and add more salt if desired.

  5. Hummus will keep in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
