Best in Show: HUMMUS

I have perfected my hummus recipe and am happy to share with my lovely readers. The secret is in the directions, so don’t look over that part. I’ve always been one to buy store brand hummus, but after this recipe, I don’t think any will even come close to being as delicious!

Danielle’s Garlic Tahini Hummus

  • 1 15 oz can of organic chickpeas
  • a heaping 1/4 c tahini
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • dash of salt
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbls olive oil


  1. Rinse chickpeas, add to pot and fill with water until just covered
  2. Boil chickpeas (in water) for 5 minutes or until soft *KEY!! Do not omit this part*
  3. Drain some water, but save at least a cup
  4. Add chickpeas to a food processor, along with lemon juice, garlic, tahini and 1/2 c reserved water (I started with one garlic clove and added two more by the end, you may want to taste as you go too)
  5. Process for 5 minutes
  6. Scrape hummus off the sides and add a pinch of salt along with 1 tbls olive oil
  7. Process for several more minutes. Add extra water to obtain a desired consistency


And a sunset!
