Smooth & Creamy Hummus


An easy and delicious hummus recipe that’s smooth and creamy.



  • 1 (15.5 oz.) can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or greek yogurt
  • 1 medium sized garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of paprika
  • cilantro, parsley, or additional chickpeas to garnish (optional)


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  2. Blend or puree until very smooth. While the hummus is processing, you can add in a little bit more olive oil to help achieve a super creamy texture.
  3. Serve with pita, crackers, chips, veggies, or sandwiches. Enjoy!


This hummus is very adaptable to your taste preferences. Like it really garlicky? Add a second clove of garlic! Enjoy the slightly tart intensity of sun-dried tomatoes? Add them in! You could also sub greek yogurt for the sour cream if you are looking for a lower fat/lower caloric option as well.
