Before we begin crafting our mouthwatering Lebanese hummus, let's gather the essential ingredients recommended by Lebanesecuisines and Zeitounclaygate:

- 1 cup of dried chickpeas

- 1/3 cup of tahini (sesame paste)

- 2-3 cloves of garlic

- Juice of 1-2 lemons (adjust to taste)

- 1 teaspoon of cumin

- Salt to taste

- 2-3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil

- A pinch of paprika for garnish (optional)

- Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


Soak the Chickpeas

Start by soaking the dried chickpeas in cold water for at least 12 hours or overnight. This will soften them and make them easier to blend.

Cook the Chickpeas

Drain and rinse the soaked chickpeas, then place them in a large pot and cover them with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer. Cook for about 45-60 minutes or until the chickpeas are tender. Skim off any foam that forms on the surface.

Drain and Cool

Once the chickpeas are cooked, drain them and allow them to cool slightly.

Blend the Ingredients

In a food processor, combine the cooked chickpeas, tahini, garlic cloves, lemon juice, cumin, and a pinch of salt. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. If it's too thick, you can add a bit of water to achieve your desired consistency.

Assembly and Serving

Now that your Lebanese hummus is ready, it's time to assemble and serve it to perfection:


Transfer the hummus to a serving dish and create a shallow well in the center with the back of a spoon.


Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil over the top of the hummus, allowing it to flow into the well. This not only adds a rich flavor but also enhances the presentation. You can also sprinkle a pinch of paprika and freshly chopped parsley for an extra touch of color and taste.

Dipping and Pairing

Lebanese hummus is incredibly versatile. Serve it as a dip with warm pita bread, fresh vegetables, or even crispy falafel made using our Falafel Recipe. It also makes a sandwich spread or a side dish for grilled meats and kebabs.


Don't be afraid to get creative with your hummus. Add toppings like pine nuts, roasted red peppers, or olives for a unique twist. Adjust the lemon juice, garlic, or salt to suit your preferences.
