This recipe for gluten free easy homemade garlic hummus makes the best snack! The recipe uses garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas), olive oil, tahini and lemon juice. These ingredients give the hummus dip a creamy texture with a delicious flavor. I like to serve my homemade hummus with crackers and fresh veggies.



15.5 ounce can Garbanzo Beans (chickpeas)
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 cup Tahini
2 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
1 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
1/4 tsp. Paprika, plus more for garnish
3 Tbsp. Olive Oil, plus more for garnish
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Cold Water


Drain and rinse the canned chickpeas.

In a 2-quart saucepan bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the chickpeas and boil for 6-8 minutes until soft. If skins are floating strain those off. Drain the chickpeas and pick out any large skins.

In a food processor or blender add the chickpeas, tahini, garlic, salt, cumin, paprika, olive oil and lemon juice. Blend until smooth stopping to scrape down the sides as needed between blending.

Add 2 tablespoons of cold water and blend. If the hummus is too thick add another 2 tablespoons of cold water and blend until incorporated.

Serve topped with a drizzle of olive oil and paprika sprinkled on top.
