Hummus Recipe – Better Than Store-Bought


First, let us mention that this simple hummus recipe uses tahini. In the hummus-loving world, there are two camps. Some love the zest and deep flavor of tahini added, others could really go without it. We like it both ways, but for smooth hummus rivaling our favorite brands in the store, we use this recipe.



So, what’s the secret?


It’s simple really. It’s the order in which you add ingredients to your food processor. Seriously, it’s that easy. Tahini and lemon juice go in first. Then, before you add anything else, turn on the food processor and let it run for a minutes or so.

See the photos below? In the first one, we’re pouring tahihi into a clean food processor. After a minute of being whirled, whipped and creamed in the food processor it turns into the paste you see on the right. It’s lighter in color and much thicker.
