Recipe: Basic Smooth Hummus

Hummus is simple to make and is best to keep very basic and exceptionally smooth. More recently the trend has been to blend in chunky things, like garlic hunks, pine nuts, roasted red peppers, chopped olives, etc. But these things are better to top your hummus with and then drizzle on a little olive oil and perhaps sprinkle on some Zatar. The presentation looks much great.


  • 29 oz can of garbanzos, drained
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1 Tablespoon Amore garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Put it all in the food processor.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Refrigerate to let the flavors get to know each other.
