The Best Classic Hummus Recipe

  • Author: Allison
  • Total Time: 5 minutes


While I usually shy away from superlatives, this hummus recipe is truly the best. Simple ingredients used in the right proportions result in a hummus recipe that knocks it out of the park.


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Garnish (Optional):

  • Chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • Za’atar
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor fitted with the ‘S’ blade and blend until VERY smooth. This will take a couple of minutes. You want the texture to be as silky and smooth as possible.
  2. Transfer the hummus into a container and garnish with optional olives, za’atar, and extra virgin olive oil.
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
