Are you ready for Fall? I know I am. In fact, I have been ready for a while now. I will tell you my little secret. I don't really like summer that much. It's just too hot and this year was pretty bad so I am happy it's gone at least for now.  The only thing I will miss is the summer fruits and vegetables. 

This week's recipe is hummus. This was my childhood favorite thing to eat and it continues to be. I am happy to see that my son loves it and I already can see that this will be one of his favorite things too.

I can eat hummus almost every day, it's healthy and it's the perfect thing to do ahead of time and eat when you are in a rush so I always keep some in my fridge. Another great thing about hummus is that it's easy and quick to make and definitely cheaper and tastier than store bought hummus.

2 cups cooked chickpeas (or 1 15.5oz canned drained)
1/2 cup tahini
1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for garnish
2 garlic clove
the juice of 1 lemon
1/4 water (from boiled chickpeas)
salt to taste

Drain the chickpeas and place them in a medium saucepan, add water to cover them and boil the chickpeas for 5 minutes. Drain the chickpeas reserving 1/4 cup of water. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, taste for seasoning. Transfer to a serving plate and drizzle hummus with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with paprika.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Mmmmm, I love hummus! I can eat it every day! Especially with carrots and celery sticks!
    This looks delicious. I love your photographs.

  2. This is one of my fav things too. Beautiful photos

  3. This recipe seems very easy. I usually eliminate the step that requires boiling and blending the chickpeas by using canned mashed chickpeas. I believe Cortas brand is the one i use. I'll have to try this one out though.

  4. When I visited Riyadh, an Arab friend introduced me to hummus. Ever since, I eat everything with it. I never thought I will be lucky to stumble upon this recipe so I can have a homemade version of my fave- hummus!

  5. I don't know why I hate chickpeas but I just LOVE hummus! It's a delight everytime I eat it!! It goes well with crackers hehe

  6. I just found your blog for the first time and it literally took my breath away. It is gorgeous. Also, I love hummus (currently living in Israel so hard not to!) and love your recipe.
