  • ▢2 cans chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • ▢2 lemons juiced
  • ▢⅔ cup drippy tahini
  • ▢½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ▢½ teaspoon salt
  • ▢2 cloves garlic
  • ▢1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ▢⅓ cup ice cold water
  • ▢1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves for garnish

Garlic oil

  • ▢¼ cup olive oil
  • ▢2-3 cloves garlic
  • ▢¼ teaspoon whole coriander seeds


  • Boil chickpeas in water with ½ teaspoon baking soda for 20-30 minutes, until soft. Drain.
  • Reserve 1.5 cup whole chickpeas and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a food processor place the remaining cooked chickpeas, lemon juice, crushed garlic cloves, tahini, salt and cumin. Blend until smooth.
  • While the food processor is going pour in the ice cold water in a slow stream.
  • Transfer the dip into a bowl and stir in the reserved whole chickpeas.
  • Serve drizzled with warm garlic oil (recipe below), chopped fresh parsley leaves and more whole chickpeas.

Warm Garlic Oil

  • Place olive oil in a small saucepan together with fresh garlic slices.
  • Bring the oil to a low simmer and cook for a couple minutes watching the garlic. It’s supposed to brown but it’s easy to burn so make sure the heat is very low.
  • Once the garlic is golden brown add whole coriander seeds, lemon peel and red pepper flakes (if using) and cook for another 30-60 seconds or so, just to toast.
  • Take the oil off the heat and let cool slightly before topping your hummus.


If you’re not a big fresh garlic taste lover, start with 1 clove of garlic instead of 2-3.

If you don’t make warm garlic oil, drizzle the hummus with good quality extra virgin olive oil instead.

If you want chunkier texture, reserve more whole chickpeas, 2 cups or so.

The cooked chickpeas should be very soft. Mushy and peeling is fine! Nutritional information below is approximate and includes musabaha hummus only (without garnishes).
