  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. Place all ingredients in your high speed blender

  3. You may need to use your blender’s plunger or a spatula if there are air pockets to push the chickpeas close to the blades
  4. Blend on high for a few seconds until hummus is smooth
  5. Add seasoning to taste once all blended
  6. drizzle olive oil on to blended hummus
  7. Store hummus in a sealed container and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour prior to serving.

Try adding green onions, roasted garlic, jalapeno peppers, kale, or roasted red peppers at the last stage of blending for a little creative twist!
