Smooth and Creamy Hummus Recipe

Smooth & Creamy Hummus

An Easy Hummus Dip

Total Time: 15 minutes Servings: approximately 12 1-ounce servings

Hummus is something I’ve made in my kitchen for the last 10 years. Honestly, there is no way I would survive as a vegan without it. It is a simple dip to most, but it is a healthy protein source.

It’s easy to make and delicious on any vegetable, cracker, pita chip, or toast. Add any herb, spice, or vegetable to adjust the taste. You get bonus points if it was grown in your Growing Dome.

I like to make it at home to save money and control the amount of olive oil used. Many hummus companies, like the ones you might see in the grocery store, choose lower-quality oils and add more oil than necessary to make it taste better. I hope this great-tasting recipe encourages you to make smooth and creamy hummus!

Hummus Ingredients:

1 15-ounce can of organic cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans) 

1/3 cup organic tahini

3 cloves garlic from your Dome’s winter harvest

1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt or sea salt

3 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp ground turmeric 

1/2 tsp ground cumin

2 tbsp water 

***Optional: sunflower seeds, smoked paprika, and parsley sprigs for garnish. You can also swap any of the above for roasted red peppers or pine nuts.

How to Make Classic Hummus

Preheat oven to 400 °F.

Get out your food processor, drain the chickpeas, and rinse.

Add chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, salt, olive oil, cumin, turmeric, garlic, and water.

Process until blended to a smooth texture and your desired consistency.

Garnish with parsley or other fresh herbs from your growing dome, sunflower seeds, and paprika. Voila! 6 dollars back in your pocket! Without all the unnecessary fat and calories from oily hummus.
