This is a very simple, yet delicious hummus recipe. It is perfect to use as a spread for healthy sandwiches and wraps. Using it will give an extra boost of flavor your meal was missing before. You can also add sprouts, lettuce, shredded carrots, tomato or any other fresh vegetable to make it the perfect meal!


1 cup of dried chickpeas (that have been soaked, then cooked in pressure cooker

or in a pot with water for about 1 1/2 hours)

1 clove garlic (optional)

1 Tbsp. sesame seeds or Tahini

1 pinch of Himalayan salt

2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

¼-1/2 cup filtered water (start with little water and add more if needed)


1. Place all ingredients in a blender or food mill and purée until creamy. It is

easier to do it in several smaller batches if the food processor is small.

2. Add more garlic, or lemon juice to taste.

3. Serve with fresh organic vegetables (cucumbers, celery, carrots, broccoli, etc.)

4. Finally, ENJOY!

Add fresh parsley or basil to the blender for a lighter flavor. If you add 1 tsp. of

Curry get more of an exotic twist. You can also use half of an oven roasted or fresh red pepper

(leave out the lemon in these variations). To save time you can cook the chickpeas a day in advance.
