  • 1 13.4 carton chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini (ground sesame seeds)
  • 1/8-1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 roasted red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Pinch of cumin
  • Salt to taste


  • In a blender or food processor combine all ingredients (more or less water depending on how thin or thick you like your hummus)
  • Top with a drizzle of olive oil and garnish with chopped roasted red pepper if you have extra. :)
  • Note: if you remove the skin from your chickpeas you will get a smoother hummus, however my mini chef gave up after doing it to about 5, haha!
