“This is a staple in my home. I put it on everything. It is a little bit spicy, just the way I like it. This is a very simple recipe that can be easily adjusted to taste.”

  1. First I drain and rinse the chickpeas very well (this is important). When I have time, I will boil them for 5 minutes and then let them sit in the water for an hour because the are sometimes still very hard in the can.
  2. I put all of the ingredients into the food processor and I run the processor, pulsing at first, then full on.
  3. I like my hummus very smooth, so I process for about 5-6 minutes, scraping down and stirring a few times. I also like to add water until it is very smooth (personal taste). I taste for seasoning and sometimes add more salt, pepper, etc. Add a little extra cayenne and smoked paprika for a much more spicy and exciting hummus. If you like lemon hummus, add more lemon zest and lemon juice and leave out the paprika and coriander.
  4. Enjoy!
