Quick Hummus


I admit it, as my friends and family know, I love hummus!


For those with only a few minutes, enjoy a quick homemade option.


For those with a taste for raw food and a bit more time, I hope you enjoy my personal favorite - sprouted hummus.




  • Two 14oz-16oz cans of no-salt chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Tablespoons of  tahini (sesame seed paste) - try to get the tahini in a glass bottle - not in the can
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tspn lemon juice
  • 1/2 tspn parsley




Drain chickpeas; rinse with water.

Add all ingredients in the blender.

Blend until you reach your desired consistency.




Raw Hummus (takes 3 days to prepare)




1 1/4 cups dry garbanzo beans

2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 cup raw lemon juice

3 cloves raw garlic, crushed

1 cup filtered or distilled water

1 pinch paprika for garnish




First to get the beans ready:


Soak garbanzo beans for 24 hours in refridgerator.

Drain, and let sit for 3 days, until the bean's sprouts are about 1/2 inch long.

Rinse the beans once a day to keep them sprouting.

On the third day, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Remove from heat, and let stand for 1 minute.

Place the sprouted beans in the hot water, and let sit for 1 minute then drain (this is a critical step - please don't dismiss)


Now make the hummus:


Place the sprouted beans into the container of a large food processor and add all ingredients except the paprika.

Blend until the right consistency - usually 3-6 min - adding water if necessary.

Let it sit in the food processor for 5 minutes to allow the mixture to settle.  Garnish with paprika.



Let me know what you think!
