I made it with white beans, the store bought suff is good but some of the flavors seemed to taste like dirt lol the white beans made a big difference in the taste. Its $5.00 a tub at food city, making it at home cost about $1.00

We make ours too, it's so much better and as you showed, a fraction of the cost. We make it with chickpeas but i'm going to try adding different vegetables to it. I like spicy foods so I make a lot of jalapeno, habanero and red pepper blends along with garlic and artichoke. Definitely love the home made hummus.

Yes it is.....we used to make it quite a bit, but haven't done it in a while. TAFKAP Jr. eats it with a spoon.

Biggest problem with making hummus is cleaning the dang food processor.

We tried the store bought stuff a few times - one we got from Sams was OK but the others were just plain crappy


1) Buy a bag of chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) and a jar of Tahini. Tahini is best described as a watery peanut butter, but made with sesame seeds.

2) Follow the soaking & cooking instructions on the chickpeas

3) Roast a whole head of garlic in the oven until the garlic is buttery soft (usually takes at least 45 minutes)

4) In a food processor, add about half your pot of chickpeas, 1C of Tahini paste, 1tbsp of salt, and 1/2C water. Pulverize the crap out of it. If it starts getting peanut buttery thick, begin alternating a dash of EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL and fresh squeezed lemon juice.

5) Consistency should be as smooth as possible and creamy enough not to break a chip. Once the consistency is found, add half a head of the roasted garlic and continue pulverizing.


Basically, you know the consistency of hummus. DO NOT SALT early. Add salt at the end. The toughest part is getting a good consistency and a flavor profile you like. Don't be scared to use lemon juice and olive oil. However, if either starts to overpower the flavor early on, switch to small quantities of water. Experiment with various herbs and spices as well. Add more roasted garlic. Add a clove or two of fresh garlic. Salt to taste. Most importantly, homemade hummus needs to come together first. All the pulverizing heats it up a bit, so let it sit in the fridge for a while.
