I have eaten hummus a few times a week for years now. A couple years back I wanted something different, so I started messing around. After a few trial runs, this recipe represents my favorite hummus.

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini, or more to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon water, or as needed
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
Directions
  1. 1. Place chickpeas in a blender; top with olive oil, lime juice, tahini, and garlic. Blend mixture until smooth. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time and blend until desired consistency is reached. Add paprika, cayenne pepper, and cumin; blend until incorporated.
