There are some foods I never seem to get tired of and Hummus is one of them! I like using hummus as a veggie dip and also like to make sandwiches with it, spreading it on bread or a toasted bagel and topping it with lettuce and tomato slices. It tastes great and it’s so healthy, too!

I’ve tried several different hummus recipes, and my favorite so far is the recipe my friend David gave to me quite awhile ago. It has soy sauce in it, which gives it a really great flavor. If you have a food processor, that works best, but you can make hummus in a blender—you may have to stop and help stir it along, though, because of the thickness of the mixture.

Hummus is really easy to make. You just put all the ingredients in the food processor or blender and then blend away! Here’s the recipe…hope you like it!


HUMMUS by NancyC, adapted just a little from David M.

  • 1 (15-ounce) can Garbanzo beans, drained (also called chick peas)
  • 3/8 to 1/2 cup sesame tahini
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 to 1 Tablespoon garlic powder, or 1 to 2 fresh cloves of garlic, minced
  • Juice of 2 to 3 lemons (about 4 to 6 Tablespoons, depending on how lemony you like it)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil (optional)
  • Paprika for garnish (optional)
  • Water, as needed, if mixture is too thick

Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until hummus mixture is smooth enough for dipping or spreading. If mixture is too thick, add some water, a Tablespoon at a time, until you get the desired consistency. Add paprika for garnish if desired.


I still buy hummus when I don’t have time to make my own, but I really do like this homemade version best! Do you like hummus and do you make your own?
