Hummus with Garlic and Pine Nuts

This recipe is liberally modified from the recipe for “Real Hummus” on  I have made the Allrecipe’s version before, but it lacks enough tahini and the garlic kick I want.  So here is the best version I make:


  • 2 tbs garlic, minced
  • 2 cans (16 oz) garbanzo beans (reserve liquid from 1 can)
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • cayenne pepper
  • pine nuts


  • Combine beans, garlic, tahini, sea salt, black pepper, olive oil and reserved liquid from beans in food processor.
  • Squeeze lemon fully into food processor (watch for seeds)
  • Blend thoroughly until creamy
  • Transfer to a serving dish or tupperware container.
  • Drizzle olive oil over top, sprinkle cayenne pepper and then pine nuts over top
