Homemade Hummus

While I have joined everyone searching the grocery stores for pasta, bread, soup, and frozen veggies during this unpredictable time, I am also determined to not eat blandly over the next few weeks.

Below is a recipe for homemade hummus, and chances are you may already have the ingredients in your pantry!

I apologize in advance for not having specific measurements…when I cook I add ingredients to taste/consistency/etc. If you have any questions about measurements, feel free to reach out! I would be happy to make it again πŸ™‚


  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • spices: salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, Italian seasoning, cumin, paprika
  • 1 can chickpeas – drained and rinsed
  • olive oil- i’m guesstimating half cup, but start small and add to your preference!


Step 1: Slice a quarter of an onion and saute with garlic, crushed red pepper, italian seasoning and olive oil
Saute until soft, although try not to burn like I did!
Step Two: Drain/rinse the chickpeas
Step Three: Add the onions and chickpeas to a food processor. Add salt, pepper and cumin to taste (I did 3 shakes of cumin and was happy with it). Add the olive oil.
Continue adding spices and olive oil to taste and consistency of your preference
Last but not least: get fancy with it and sprinkle some paprika on top (personally I think I did a little too much, but add to taste!)

Just because we are staying home doesn’t mean we have to eat blandly! This it the time to get creative, invent, and eat healthy!
