Made mainly with chickpeas, this high protein spread is the absolute best! There are many ways to make hummus, but this recipe is by far the easiest and quickest way I've tried yet. There is no peeling of chickpeas or hours of soaking them required.


I love hummus and could seriously eat it by the spoonful. Hummus is served in so many cultures and parts of the world. I love serving it with a Middle Eastern dinner or just on its own as an appetizer dip with veggies & pita. Sometimes I use is as a spread on wraps or toast.


This delicious spread is topped with tahini sauce, olive oil, sumac, zaatar, and parsley. It seriously does not get better than that!

    Ok, but needs way more garlic. Like 6 cloves.

    Boiling already cooked chickpeas in water will destroy any nutritional value and render them flavorless. Draining & rinsing also removes the aquafaba which makes your hummus creamier and richer.
