Making hummus isn?t too hard, but it?s not all about having the right recipe. Our simple recipe for traditional homemade hummus, comes with a little of our hummus-philosophy. There?s nothing like good, healthy, homemade hummus, and there?s no reason for you not to try making it. The recipe before you, is the best in my opinion. Accurate and well tested ? although you should feel free to experiment. Good luck!

Recipe Ingredients for Real Hummus Recipe

1 c dried chickpeas
1/2 c raw Tahini
4 T lemon or 1 squeezed lemon
6 garlic cloves
1/2 t cumin
1 T baking soda
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 salt to taste
3 T olive oil
4 sprigs parsley

Recipe Directions for Real Hummus Recipe

  1. Pour the chickpeas over a large plate. Go over them and look for damaged grains small stones, or any other thing you would rather leave out of the plate.

  2. Wash the chickpeas several times, until the water is transparent. Soak them in clean water over night with 1 tablespoon of baking soda. Then, wash it, and soak again in tap water for a few more hours. The grains should absorb most of the water and almost double their volume.

  3. Wash the chickpeas well and put them in a large pot. Cover with water, add the rest baking soda and NO salt. Cook until the grains are very easily smashed when pressed between two fingers. It should take around 1-1.5 hours, during which it is advised to switch the water once again, and remove the peels and foam which float over the cooking water. When done, sieve the grains and keep the cooking water.

  4. Put the chickpeas into a food processor and grind well. Leave it to chill a little while before you continue.

  5. Add the raw Tahini and the rest of the ingredients and go on with the food processor until you get the desired texture. If the Humus is too thick, add some of the cooking water. It should be thinner than the actual desired texture.

  6. Serve with some good olive oil and chopped parsley.

  7. Serves 4 extra large bowls of Hummus.
