This will be the creamiest hummus you’ve ever made!  Enjoy as a dip, on a salad or in a wrap!


  • 2 (15 oz) cans chickpeas
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 23 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Cayenne powder, to taste


  1. Open the cans of chickpeas and drain them, while saving the chickpea juice.  Add the chickpeas to a medium sized pot, along with the baking soda and cover with water.  Bring to a boil and boil for 20 minutes.  Drain and set aside.
  2. Add the tahini, garlic, lemon juice and a splash of reserved chickpea juice to a food processor and blend until smooth, about 1 minutes.  Next, add the chickpeas, salt, cumin and cayenne and turn the food processor on.  Slowly add the chickpea juice until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Enjoy hummus immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
