  • Summary

    Why we love this recipe. When we first figured out how to make our own hummus, we were shocked at how easy (and fast) it is. With just a few simple tricks, you really can make creamy smooth hummus at home and yes, we really do think it’s better than store-bought.What you need to know. Two things here. First, we use canned chickpeas, which is much, much quicker than using dried. Some swear by soaking and cooking their own dried chickpeas, but we’re just not that organized and love that canned chickpeas means we can enjoy our hummus in 10 minutes. Second, our recipe calls for tahini, a creamy paste made from sesame seeds. You can usually find tahini in larger grocery stores or specialty markets.Equipment you’ll need. A mesh strainer or colander, food processor, silicone spatula, measuring cups and spoons.
