  • 2.5 cups beans cooked or canned
  • broth of the cooked beans
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp salt (half to cook the chickpeas and half during blending)
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper powder or chilly flakes
  • 1/2 cup red pepper sliced


For the Beans

  • Cover the beans with water from the night before.
  • The next day, drain and cook them in fresh water for 1 hour over low heat. (Add salt to the 45 minutes of cooking).

For the Hummus

  • Put the beans in a blender with garlic, red peppers and spices. Add a little bit of beans broth and blend until you get a creamy consistency.
    If the mixture is too thick, add a little bit more broth.
  • Serve, add red pepper and olive oil if you like.


  • You can use canned beans or cook your own for your Hummus preparation. The best taste will be with the cooked ones.
  • Also you can use any size of beans. I use the giant ones.
  • The type of blender will determine the texture of the final dish. A good blender will give a creamy texture. 
  • If you prefer a more garlic taste add more garlic.
