Easy and Delicious 5-Minute Hummus

Did you guys know that May 21st is
National Hummus Day?

I know I haven’t gotten into it yet on this blog,
but before we moved to Europe,  our little family (at the time)
had the distinct pleasure of spending a few years living in the Middle East.

At first, (I’m going to be completely honest here…)
It wasn’t my favorite, but after a few months, I slowly found my groove,
made some new friends after leaving my family and everything back in America
and I began to fall in love with my new surroundings.

I fell in love with the people, the country, and the cuisine.
(Y’all seriously… the food!)

Hummus, was my snack of choice and although,
nothing can beat experiencing it in a Middle Eastern country, however
making this 5 minute version can definitely curb a craving.

I hope you enjoy snacking on it, as much as we do.

Foodie Family 5 Minute Hummus

1 can garbanzo beans, drained (liquid reserved)
2 Tbsp EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
1 lemon, juiced
4-5 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
(chives for garnish)

Place all ingredients in a bullet/food processor/Ninja and blend until desired consistency is reached.

*Cooks Note: I only use about 2 Tbsp of reserved liquid, but use your discretion. I use a Ninja with auto IQ and the setting of my choice is Ultra Blend.

I’m looking forward to sharing more of my Middle Eastern memories & recipes with you.

Until Next Yum,

  1. I’ve never had hummus. I’m definitely going to have to give this a try. It seems simple enough and I like all the ingredients. Thank you for sharing!


  2. Everytime I try and enjoy a new hummus recipe, my family looks at me like I came from a different galaxy! Haha. Don’t care. I love hummus and I am making it using your recipe!


  3. Hummus is a staple in our diet. Since I don’t eat meat, I use beans as a way to add in some more protein. This sounds like a perfect recipe to add to my arsenal so I don’t have to rely on the storebought.


  4. Now that I am pescatarian I like hummus more than ever. Thanks for this 5 minute recipe I want to see if I can make this while I am here in Mexico for a few weeks


  5. I really LOVE hummus. I get it every time I go to for Mediterranean dinner. I never knew it was this easy to make. Will try it out for my next get together. Thanks!


  6. Great! A delicious and nutritious hummus recipe on the table in 5 minutes! My family loves hummus and I am glad they do because it keeps all of us healthy!


  7. Easy recipe even though I’ve never had hummus. I’m not a fan of chickpeas but I recently saw a hummus recipe made out of something else. Now I need to go look for it or make yours and give it a try. Can’t want my kids to try new things if I don’t try them too.


  8. Nice, a 5-minute snack. To be honest I haven’t eaten hummus yet in my entire life. I just saw how it is being cooked. Though it really looks delicious.
