You’re spending WAY too much on grocery store hummus. and that’s a fact.
We made a little hole in the hummus and created a puddle of olive oil – which looks weird and maybe not that appetizing in this photo, but was very tasty. The paprika also makes this look a little funky..but it’s good. just trust me this time, ok?
- 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
- 1 clove garlic
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil, plus more for serving
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
In a food processor, puree the chickpeas and garlic with the olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, cumin, and ¾ teaspoon salt until smooth and creamy. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons water as necessary to achieve the desired consistency.
Transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the paprika before serving.
