Ingredients

Optional toppings

  • Radishes sliced
  • cucumbers cut into bite size
  • roasted bell peppers
  • curly parsley
  • red onions sliced
  • toasted pine nuts

Instructions

  • First, start by peeling the chickpeas by pinching them between your finger and thumb. This step is optional but I highly recommend it to get the smoothest hummus.
  • Place the peeled chickpeas in the food processor, add in the tahini, olive oil, water, garlic cloves, paprika, salt, and the juice of half a lemon. Process until smooth. If the hummus is too thick for your liking add 1 tsp water at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Spread the hummus on a plate and top it with the optional toppings. Drizzle some good tasting olive oil and serve with flat bread or pita chips.
