Carrots and hummus
Carrots n hummus!

Using a small food processor, making homemade hummus is really quick and easy. And completely versatile.

If you haven’t figured out that I like making things that are easy and versatile, hey guess what.. I really love making and sharing things that are easy and versatile.

Actually.. It’s really that I value creating and sharing solid foundational things to grow upon. <– THIS CONCEPT IS EVERYTHING I DO IN MY LIFE.

Aaaaaanyway.. This spicy, garlic hummus is no exception!

This is a good basis for a quick, tasty dip that isn’t terrible for you. Please do mix up your ingredients for different flavors and share with me what you do and how it goes!


Jalapeno slices, minced garlic, tbsp of garbanzo bean liquid
Most of the ingredients..
  • 1 15.5oz can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  • 1 tbsp of the liquid from the can (If you forget to do this, you can use a tbsp of olive oil)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (the plastic lemon kind is totally fine)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (I’m sure the pre-minced jar version works, too. Try starting with 1 tsp)
  • 4 thin slices of fresh jalapeno depending on how spicy you want it (4 is like a 4/5 spicy)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Making Your Spicy Garlic Hummus

Ingredients in food processor
Blending in 3… 2… 1.. VWRRRRRR
  1. Put all ingredients into food processor
  2. Blend for 30 seconds
  3. Give it a quick mix with a spoon or fork, being very careful while poking around the food processor blades. Do NOT do the mixing while the food processor is on!!! Common sense, people!
  4. Continue blending at 30 second intervals until you’ve reached the desired consistency. I like mine a little smoother rather than course so I repeat these cycles for a good while.

Now, wasn’t that easy-chick-peasy?!
