Classic Hummus:

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus:

Za’atar Hummus:


  1. Drain the chickpeas into a strainer and rinse under cool running water.
  2. Add chickpeas to a food processor or blender.
  3. Add olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic clove and sea salt.
  4. Blend hummus on high until smooth. You may have to stop the food processor a couple of times to scrape down the sides to remove chunks and ensure it is smooth.
  5. To make the roasted red pepper or za’atar hummus simply add the extra ingredient and continue to puree until everything is well blended.
  6. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. You can add a little more lemon juice to help thin it out, or drizzle of olive oil to make it extra creamy.
  7. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.
  8. Enjoy!
