Hummus is traditionally made with chickpeas and served with pita bread.


  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) reduced-sodium chickpeas, rinsed and drained except for 1/4 cup liquid
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)*
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley

*Note: If you need to follow a gluten-free diet, check the label to make sure the brand of tahini is gluten-free.


Using a blender or food processor, puree the chickpeas. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, pepper, paprika, tahini and parsley. Blend well.

Add the reserved liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture has the consistency of a thick spread.

Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
