I think we all go through that one phase while growing up where we discover a certain food and proceed to eat only that food for an entire month. For me, that food was hummus. The time, college.

I mean, hummus is a totally acceptable meal when you’re in college. And if I had only known at the time just how easy it is to make hummus at home, and how many flavors you can make with the ingredients you already have in your fridge, I may well have continued eating hummus for every meal all four years!

Today we’re making four of my favorite flavors: Traditional, Romesco (based on this awesome sauce), Roasted Garlic, and Chipotle. Just pick the flavor you want to make, throw its ingredients in a food processor along with the base ingredients. Boom, hummus! If you have an extra 20 minutes and value ultra-creamy hummus, put on a good podcast and remove the skins from the chickpeas. It does wonders for the creamy dreaminess of your hummus!

  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil 45 mL
  • 3 Tbsp tahini 45 mL
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice 30 mL
  • 1 clove garlic except for roasted garlic flavor
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Flavor Makers

  • Romesco: 1 or 2 roasted red peppers, ½ cup chopped roma tomatoes, ½ tsp smoked paprika

Instructions

  1. Choose a flavor you would like to make. Add the base ingredients plus the flavor makers to a food processor. Blitz until smooth and creamy. For best texture, let cool in the fridge for an hour before eating.

Notes

For smoothest results, peel chickpeas before making the hummus. This is a bit tedious, but makes for much smoother hummus!
