Hummus – حمّص


16 0z Chickpeas
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 1/2 Tbsp Tahini
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 cloves Garlic
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp fresh Parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper (optional)

Well Garnish:
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
5 Parsley Sprigs, cut short
3 Kalamata Olives
1/4 tsp Sesame Seeds

Pita Bread


  • Combine all ingredients in a Food Processor, and pulse until desired consistency. If needing more creamy, add more Olive Oil.

To Serve, pour into a bowl and make a well, and add Well Garnish. Serve with warm, grilled, or toasted Pita Bread

NOTES:  “Hummus” or حمّص is Arabic for “chickpeas”.   The Spanish word is Garbanzo Beans, so if you do not see Chickpeas in your store, look for the Spanish name. There is no difference in what you’re buying… “a rose by any other name…”
