Mmmm-hmmm Hummus

Mmmm-hmmm Hummus

This is a tasty dip that goes great with either pita chips, bagel chips, or your favorite crusty bread. Try squeezing a little extra lemon juice over the top before serving.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes plus time for chilling
  • Yield: About 2 cups, serving 4 to 6


  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed well in a colander set in a sink
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus extra for serving, if desired
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baby Bam
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • Pita bread, pita chips, or bagel chips, for serving
  • Blow You Away Bagel Chips (optional)
  • Vegetables, for dipping (optional)


  • In the bowl of a food processor combine the chickpeas with 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, the onion, water, tahini, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon of the Baby Bam, the cumin, salt, garlic, and cayenne pepper. Process until the mixture is combined and mostly smooth, about 1 minute.

  • Turn the processor off and carefully remove the lid and blade. Using a rubber spatula, remove the hummus from the bowl of the processor, transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 1/2 to 2 hours and up to several days in advance.

  • When ready to serve, stir the hummus and transfer to a shallow serving bowl. Drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon Baby Bam.

  • Serve with pita bread, pita chips, Blow-You-Away Bagel Chips, or vegetables for dipping.
