10 Minute Homemade Hummus

My favorite go to hummus is one that highlights the chickpea and tahini flavors and is quick and easy. The key to a clean and delicious hummus is to use really good ingredients. Goya chickpeas, the star ingredient, is a great product with flavorful chickpeas and liquid and available at most grocery stores. For the other main ingredient, it's worth seeking out Soom Sesame Tahini, a brand easily found on Amazon. However, don't let these specific brands stop you- any brand of ingredients will still be better than store bought hummus, promise!

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and liquid reserved I like Goya and S&W brands
  • ¼ cup sesame tahini Soom brand is excellent
  • 1-2 Tbsp lemon, squeezed
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½-1 tsp Kosher Diamond Salt


  1. In a food processor, add the chickpeas and about 2 Tbsp of the reserved liquid and pulse till smooth. Stop a few times to scrape down the sides, adding more reserved chickpea liquid if needed.

  2. Add the lemon juice, tahini, cumin, garlic powder and salt. Process until smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add more reserved chickpea liquid if needed.

  3. Season to taste by adding more of any of the above ingredients until you have your desired taste preference. I often add another pinch of salt as well as another spoon of tahini.

  4. To serve, scoop the hummus into a bowl and with a spoon make a well using a swirl motion. If desired, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with smoked paprika and coarse salt.
