  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon regular paprika powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika powder
  • 1/2 cup jarred roasted red bell peppers


  • Place all ingredients in a high speed blender.
  • Process until smooth. 


  • I like the hummus best when it's chilled in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours after making it. This way the texture will be perfect and it will have a deeper flavor.
  • If you're not a big garlic fan, leave out the garlic or use a smaller clove of garlic. Especially when the hummus sits in the fridge for a while, it will have a pretty intense garlic flavor. 
  • I usually serve my hummus topped with pine nuts and freshly chopped parsley. Besides, I like to sprinkle it with red pepper flakes for extra spiciness.
