The Best Homemade Chummus

Make this dip once and I promise you will never buy hummus again! 

I was always told that as an adult, your taste buds will change but I never believed it. Growing up my father would buy dozens of dips every shabbos. I never touched them. Somewhere along the way I fell in love with dips. I think it was at my friend’s house. I was staying by her for shabbos while in NY for a date and her father offered me some dips. Wanting to be polite, I took a tiny bit on my plate and dipped some of my challah in it. Mouth full of Challah and hummus I looked up and said this is really good! My friend’s father was thrilled! Once I got into dips I actually regretted not enjoying all the dips my father had got when I was little! 

Hummus is a classic. It goes great with anything and everything. Every week I make a big batch which we snack on throughout the week. Sometimes I will double or triple the batch and freeze it in small batches and take out as needed per meal. Link to some of my other favorite dips: (xxx matbucha) (xxx schug) (xxx mushroom dip)

Print Recipe


  • 1 15.5oz can chickpeas
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp tahini paste (optional)
  • Oil for drizzling


  • Place everything in a food processor except the oil, while the motor is running slowly add the oil until you've reached a creamy consistency (usually about ⅓ cup)


Stores well in fridge for a few days or it freezes very well. I like to make big batch (you can double or triple the recipe) and store in small containers perfect for each meal.
