Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 400 gr canned chickpeas (~14 oz, ~0.9 lb)
  • 6 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 lemon
  • 6 cubes of ice
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Half teaspoon salt
  • to garnish:
  • ground sumac
  • ground cumin
  • 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Parsley


  1. For a perfectly smooth hummus first, you need to peel the chickpeas. Add 400 gr
    canned chickpeas in a large bowl and rub to take the skin off.
  2. Fill the bowl with water and skins will start to float. When you drain, skins will group
    on water and it will be much easier to collect.
  3. Add peeled chickpeas, 2 cloves of garlic, half of a teaspoon salt, 6 tablespoons of
    tahini and 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil to a food processor.
  4. Squeeze a lemon juice and run for 7-8 minutes at low-medium speed.
  5. While the food processor is working the hummus will get warm. To avoid that add 6
    cubes of ice gradually. ıce will help to make smooth hummus as well.
  6. After a couple of minutes, hummus will be okay but not smooth enough. Don’t give
    up and continue until the hummus is creamy. You can run at high speed at this stage.
  7. Taste and adjust the lemon, tahini, and salt to your taste. Garlic and olive oil always
    need time to settle. If you have 2-3 hours before eating the taste will be better.
  8. When the hummus is ready put it on the serving table and makes a little crater with the
    back of a spoon.
  9. Sprinkle ground sumac, cumin, and parsley leaves. Last but not least pour 2-3
    tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
