Well-Being for Moms

Authentic Hummus


2 cups cooked chickpeas (+ reserve some of the cooking liquid)

5 T tahini

2-3 cloves garlic

100 ml olive oil

1/2 t salt (or more to taste)

1/2 lemon, juiced

pinch of cayenne pepper

sprinkle of sweet paprika and fresh parsley for serving


  • Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender until smooth. Add some of the cooking liquid if it doesn't turn in your blender. But you want pretty thick consistency.
  • Serve with a generous drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika and some cut fresh parsley.
  • Store in a refrigerator for about a week.
