Homemade Hummus

Updated: Jul 10, 2022

Hello LRY humans!

I had heard a rumor, that Miv has a really delicious and simple hummus recipe, so of course, I had to get it!

She shared that the infamous recipe was created by her brother-in-law and has attempted to recreate it. She expressed that it’s one of those orally-transmitted intuitive kind of recipes, so please keep that in mind when you try this for yourself!

"My brother-in-law Naftali is a native of Jerusalem, and has learned many secrets of excellent mid-eastern cooking from his Arab friends." This is an approximation of his hummus recipe!

*amounts are all estimates, and should be adjusted according to taste.


  • Chickpeas

  • Tahini (about 1/2-3/4 cup)

  • Lemon juice (1/2-1 lemon)

  • Garlic (as much as you like - at least one or two big cloves)

  • Salt (to taste)

  • Cumin (optional)

Step 1: Start with placing a can of cooked chickpeas (or the equivalent amount of dried chickpeas that you have soaked and cooked) in a good-quality food processor.

Continue to process until the mixture is very well blended and smooth. If necessary add a bit of lemon juice or water if the hummus is too thick.

Step 2: Run the food processor for at least 5 minutes, pausing to scrape the sides as needed.

Step 3: Add Tahini

Step 4: Add Lemon juice

Step 5: Add Garlic

Step 6: Salt to taste

Optional - pinch of cumin
