Chicky Chicky Hummus

  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 cups canned chickpeas, drained, liquid reserved
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • 6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • 2 tablespoons water or liquid from the chickpeas
  • dash of paprika for garnish


Peel and mince garlic in a food processor.  Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor or blender and chop until the hummus is coarsely pureed. Taste, for seasoning.  Add paprika for garnish, and serve chilled or at room temperature.

Great as a sandwich spread, dip with pita, chips, or veggies.

Try variations with chopped scallions, dill, or chili powder.

Good for you and tasty, too!

Chick peas or garbanzo beans are high in protein, folic acid, manganese, dietary fiber, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.  Great filling and healthy snack for pregnant moms, nursing moms, and kids.
