How to make it

  • In a food processor, combine the chickpeas. tahini, garlic, lemon zest and juice, and spices.
  • Process until almost smooth, a few minutes.
  • With machine running, slowly pour in the oils until well incorporated.
  • Stop and check texture. If it is at all heavy, turn machine back on and process again, adding water a bit at a time until texture is lighter and a bit fluffy but not gloopy-- this takes a bit of trial and error!
  • Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
  • Scrape hummus out into a wide bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Store refrigerated; best if flavors are allowed to mellow a few hours before serving.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle a little paprika on top for a nice color.
  • Serve with pita bread triangles or any other thinly.sliced bread or cracker.

    Yes, Mandy, you can make tahini yourself. Try this recipe:
    It makes a lot but I'm sure you could halve or even quarter it!

    Yummy! I love hummus. Is it possible to make tahini? I can not find that stuff anywhere here in Mississippi.
