Cheap Homemade Hummus
Creamy Smooth Hummus Garnished with Sesame and Sunflower Seeds and Basil

We all love hummus right? If there was one thing we don’t like about it, we can probably all agree on that too – the price. 

Once you start making your own hummus, you’ll never turn back. It is so easy, tastes fresh, and is much cheaper than store bought hummus. Here is a basic hummus recipe, so you can feel free to change it up any way you like.


Serves approximately 10 people

  • 2 (15oz) Cans of Chickpeas (also known as Garbanzo Beans)
  • 1/3 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 1/3 Cup Tahini
  • Up to 1/4 Cup Water (until desired consistency is reached)
  • 3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 tsp. Sea Salt


  1. In a food processor or blender, add in all ingredients except water. If you don’t have a food processor you can use a large bowl and mash the chickpeas.
  2. Turn the food processor on high, pulsing as needed to mix in all of the chickpeas.
  3. Gradually add in water until a smooth consistency is reached. If the hummus is still thicker than you’d like, add in 1 or 2 more Tbsp. of lemon juice.
  4. Garnish with additional olive oil, paprika, seeds, and basil or parsley.
  5. Enjoy with just about anything… pita bread, chips, veggies, or on a wrap!
