Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 cup Chickpeas
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 3 tsp Olive Oil
  • 2 ½ tsp Lemon Juice
  • 3 tbsp Water
  • Salt to taste


  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  • Remove the skins from chickpeas.
  • Add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

You can taste as you blend and add more of a specific ingredient if you like. I put these specific measurements because I always end up serving hummus with more olive oil and spices on top.
