Home-style Hummus

A hummus version I learned from my mom with lemon juice and no olive oil, unless you drizzle some on top for decoration.



  1. Crush garlic in a mortar and pestle with the dash of salt. (Best alternate would be a garlic press but in case you do not have either mincing would work also).
  2. Pour out juice from can of chick peas (garbanzo beans) into a container to use later.
  3. Squeeze two lemons and store in separate container.
  4. Combine chick peas, half of the chick pea juices, half of the lemon juice, the garlic and the tahini (sesame butter) in a food processor.
  5. Blend. Add more tahini, lemon, or chick pea juices to desired taste and consistency. Sometimes it takes a little juggling :)
  6. Note: a serving is approximately 2 tablespoons.
