Cook's Illustrated's Hummus

I love hummus!  Here is the easy recipe from Cook's Illustrated.  We love this, Noah and I gave it a perfect 10 and Aaron and Owen gave it a 9.  Calories are around 40-50 calories a tablespoon depending on your tahini.  Great with pita chips, pitas, veggies, on sandwiches, anything!

1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 lemon, juiced
2 cloves garlic
1/4 c tahini
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c water
cayenne pepper

Mix it together in a food processor.  Serve cold.


  1. Do you prepare your own Hummus or buy it already prepared??

  2. I guess you prepare it yourself if you use the food processor. I like it, but don't think your dad would especially with the garlic. Love mom
