Serve this classic homemade hummus recipe along with pitas, tortilla chips or fresh veggies! A healthy snacking appetizer!
I love hummus but hate buying it from the store because the container is always just too small! I finally decided to make my own! I used Pioneer Woman’s Heavenly Hummus recipe and loved it! The hardest part about the recipe is finding Tahini in the grocery store!! (it’s in the Asian food isle just FYI)
- Garbanzo beans – also called chickpeas. You can find these in the bean isle of any major grocery store
- Tahini – find this in the Asian isle of your grocery store
- Garlic – it’s best to use whole cloves
- Lemon – you will only use the juice of a 1/2 lemon. So save the other half and put it towards these Copycat Nothing Bundt Lemon Cakes!
- Cumin – dried cumin
- Salt – to taste
- Basil – I prefer to use fresh basil in this recipe. Fresh basil can be found in the refrigerator section of produce. However, it’s often times way more economical to buy a living basil plant (also found in the produce section) and then you have a plant at your disposal!
- Water – to help thin out your hummus mixture
- Olive oil – use a mild oil that doesn’t have too much of a robust taste
How To Make Classic Hummus
Everyone helped out in making the hummus! My daughter picked the fresh basil, my son opened the cans of chick peas and my little guy worked the blender!
What to serve hummus with?
My favorite way to eat hummus is with pretzels or soft pita triangles! You can also serve it with carrots, broccoli, celery or even better…on a sandwich!! This is one of my all-time favorite sandwiches with hummus: Hummus and Avocado Sandwich Recipe
