Homemade Hummus

Recipe from Pick-Up-Limes

Makes 2 small jam jars

Ingredients for making hummus:

1. 2 cups of cooked chickpeas (equivalent to 3/4 cup (135 g) uncooked dried chickpeas)
2. 1/4 cup water
3. Juice of 1 lemon
4. 3 TBS (30 ml) tahini (I like to make this myself)
5. 1 TBS (15 ml) olive oil
6. 2 cloves garlic
7. Pinch of salt

For cooking chickpeas:
1. 1 litre of water for every 100 g of dried chickpeas


1. Soak chickpeas overnight for 10-12 hours. Rinse and discard water.

2. In a pot, add chick peas and water and bring to boil. Simmer under medium low heat (no. 4 or 4,5 on my stove) for 2 hours until chickpeas are cooked and soft (you are able to mash it with a fork).

3. Discard water and let cool.

4. In a food processor or high-powered blender, add all the ingredients and blend until creamy. I use my Magimix high-powered blender. I start with using the dessert setting, and use the tamper to scrap off the side. When the dessert program is done, I give it another cycle using the speed dial. I start with Speed 1, and gradually move to Speed 2 and Speed 3 and blend for another 45 seconds.


Hummus can be kept for 5 days in an air-tight container.

Additional information:

I really like the recipes from Pick up Limes. I tried out this hummus recipe, and it's perfect.


In my magimix power blender, I add 2 cups of cooked chickpeas.

Then add 1/4 cup water

Squeeze 1 lemon

Add 3 tablespoons of tahini

Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil

Add 2 cloves of garlic

Pinch of salt

Now it's ready to blend :-)

Use the dessert program, using the tamper to scrap down the side.

Take it out, scrap down and do another blend using the Speed dial. 

Blend for 45 seconds at Speed 3 (Turn on at Speed 1 and slowly move up to Speed 3)

Now it's done :-) Ready to be enjoyed :-)
