  • 3 cans garbanzo beans/chick peas
  • 3 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp salt or to taste


  • Place 2 drained cans of garbanzo beans into your food processor.
  • Drain out about 1/2 the liquid from your 3rd can of garbanzo beans and add to your food processor.
  • Chop garlic and add remaining ingredients to the food processor.
  • Process hummus until smooth (usually a full 2 to 3 minutes).
  • Some may prefer it chilled prior to serving but I can eat it right out of the food processor.
