Hummus is a delicious chickpea-based dip. There is no substitute for homemade anything, and even something home-cooked as simple as this hummus recipe is far superior to anything.


Cooked dried chickpeas


Juice of lemon

Roasted garlic

Roasted garlic olive oil

Sea salt

Cayenne pepper


Submerge some dried chickpeas in cold water and let them sit overnight. I like for the water to cover the chickpeas by at least 4 inches.


Drain the chickpeas and transfer to a pot and add in cold water until it is covering the garbanzo beans by about 2 inches.


Bring them to a boil over high heat and then simmer for 30-40 minutes over low heat or until tender.


Drain the cooked garbanzo beans and transfer to a pot or bowl and cover them with cold water.


Place your hands into the pot or bowl and move the chickpeas around, irritating them so that the outside shell falls off. Scoop up the shells using a hands trainer and remove.
