  • 15 ounces garbanzo beans, drained 1 can
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • Sea salt to taste
  • cup olive oil more or less
  • Garnish: olive oil and paprika


  1. Put garlic in food processor and pulse till minced. Stop processor and add garbanzo beans and juice of half a lemon. Start processor. While processor is working, slowly add olive oil until hummus reaches desired consistency. Add sea salt to taste.
  2. To serve: place in a dish, drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle with paprika and serve with vegetables, pita bread or pita chips! I also use hummus in wraps and sandwiches for flavor and added protein. You can keep it covered in the fridge for several days.
