Instructions Checklist
  • In a food processor bowl or blender container, combine chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and red pepper, if desired. Cover and process or blend until smooth. Spoon into a serving bowl. Serve with pita wedges or crisps, bagel chips, and/or carrots and celery. Makes 6 to 8 side-dish servings (1-3/4 cups).



Prepare hummus; cover and chill up to 24 hours.


For a thicker spread, drain the chickpeas, reserving the liquid. Add enough liquid to process easily and to make desired texture.
