Now if you have made the recipe before, and loved it, don’t worry its still the same recipe. So you are good there. All we did was update the footage a little bit and we answered some questions we got over the years.

So lets go make it. Lets do it. Canned chickpeas make this recipe quick and easy — simply drain and rinse them.

By the way, cooking your own chickpeas is an option, too! See how on Inspired Taste. For ultra-smooth hummus, remove the chickpea skins — this can be time-consuming, so we don’t do it every time.

The hummus will still be very smooth without removing them so it’s up to you. Now on to the hummus. You need tahini — we use homemade (it ridiculously easy to make). Hop over to our tahini video for the step-by-step.

Next, comes lemon juice — fresh is best. Turn on the food processor for a minute. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process for 30 seconds more. See how it becomes lighter in color and looks thick and creamy? Creaming the tahini and lemon juice before adding any other ingredients is one of our secrets to making extra smooth hummus. We need garlic — we only use one clove,but you could always add more.

Roasted garlic would be really good, too! In goes some olive oil, a little cumin and some salt.

Turn the processor on for another minute until everything is mixed, scrape the bowl again then get ready to add the chickpeas! We add the chickpeas in two batches and are careful to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl a few times to make sure everything is being mixed in. After a minute or two, the hummus will be smooth.

By the way — lots of you have asked if you can use a blender to make hummus. The answer is yes, but it does need to be high-powered.

Last step — to make the hummus really smooth and just like the hummus you buy at the store add a little water — As you add the water, you can see it get smoother and smoother! Add as much or as little as you need — this time, it looks like 3 tablespoons will do the trick.

And that’s it — extra smooth hummus that’s way better than anything you can buy at the store! The hummus will keep in the fridge for about a week (if you don’t eat it by then) and in the freezer for about a month. Just make sure you use an airtight container.

Ours never lasts long! We love adding a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika. Extra garlic, pine nuts, feta cheese or olives would all be great,too! Enjoy! This hummus is so good. Yes it is and it is easy, too.
