We’re Adam and Joanne from inspiredtaste.net
and welcome to our kitchen.
We’re making one of our most popular recipes
Hi Guys! We are super excited today. We are
sharing our new, updated hummus recipe video.
We are really excited because we shared our
hummus recipe video a few years back — 3
years — and it was really popular. So popular
that it has gotten almost 2 Million views
on YouTube, which is insane.
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
Canned chickpeas makes 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’s
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
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
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
And that’s it — extra smooth hummus that’s
way better than anything you can buy at the
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,
This hummus is so good. Yes it is and it is
easy, too. You can get the full recipe on
