  • 250g of chickpeas
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp tahini or sesame oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 pinch of salt


Step 1

Add the chickpeas, chickpea water (or regular water), and garlic clove to the mixer.

I recommend you not to pour all the (chickpea) water all at once. After mixing everything for the first time, you will see what the consistency looks like and will be able to add more water (or not) according to your preference.

Step 2

Blend everything.

Step 3

Add tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, and salt.

Step 4

Mix and adjust seasoning if needed.

Step 5

Top with paprika and cilantro leaves and enjoy!

Note et variations

  • If you struggle digesting chickpeas, consider removing the skin when rinsing them
  • Refrigerated, your hummus will last you up to 4 days, but you probably won’t have any leftovers (-;
