Hummus 1.2

Hummus is good, to make a delicious batch simply read further with a food processor or a spoon and a lot of ambition.

1 15 oz. can of Garbanzo beans (Goya Organic are smooshiest)

1 Fresh lemon

1 Hearty Garlic Clove minced

3-4 tbsp Tahini

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 tsp Salt

¼ tsp Ground White Pepper

¼ tsp Ground Cumin

For a thick texture, almost peanut butter texture, strain the beans and pour them all into the food processor. Juice the lemon and pour that in their too. Run processor on high. Almost immediately the beans get too thick to flow. Trickle olive oil in there for like 3 or 4 seconds, that should do it. Rub lemon peels on hands. Mmmmmm, right? Remove the lid of the processor, add minced garlic and tahini. If the tahini is too thick, only add three tablespoons. Too much tahini is embarrassing. Replace processor lid and run on low. While it’s running, slowly dump the olive oil through the glory hole. A slow and consistent pour adds a frothy fluffiness to the batch. Without any grace, dump the salt, pepper, and cumin.


  1. this is one of the strangest coincidences I have ever experienced. I was about to head out to the store when I realized I didn't know what to buy. I go on to the blog to figure out how I can find the recipe for "Matt's Hummus" - the kind Matt makes from First Slice's recipe.

    THE FRONT PAGE????? What an amazing time saver.
    No need to kill or waste it.

    once again - THANK YOU PANOPTI!

  2. wait.. hummus?
    I eat hummus... using my mouth.
    I also use my mouth to communicate..
    sometimes I use both my mouth and a cell phone if someone is really far away..but.....

    I can't find my charger anywhere, I thought I packed it up from the basement. Did I leave it?
