Ingredients
  

  • 15 oz Chickpeas
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves

Instructions
 

  • Rinse the chickpeas thoroughly.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor, starting with 2 tbsp of oil and 2 tbsp of water.
  • Blend until creamy, approximately 1-2 minutes. You may need to scrap down the sides with a spatula depending on your processor/blender and blend again.
  • If you desire creamier hummus, add the additional tbsps of water and oil and blend again.
  • Transfer to a bowl and top with extra salt + pepper, olive oil, fresh lemon juice and/or chopped dill.
  • I love to eat my hummus with fresh cucumbers and carrots or pita chips. However, this hummus can be served with anything you like and is also great to spread on sandwiches or add into salads.

Notes

Storage
-Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 6 days. If you top the hummus with olive oil before refrigerating it, you may notice that the oil separates from the hummus. Simply mix the olive oil into the hummus before consuming.
-I do not recommend freezing this hummus.
Substitutions + Tips
-You may use white beans instead of chickpeas. Please note, however, you may need less olive oil and water, as white beans are softer and, therefore, easier to blend. 
-You may omit garlic if you are intolerant.
-Fresh dill is required for this recipe. Dried dill will not work.
-You can find tahini at your local grocery store. It is usually in the aisle with other condiments or in the aisle with international foods
