Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry garbanzo beans
  • 6 ½ cups water
  • ¾ cup tahini
  • 6 tablespoons ice-cold water
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, or more to taste
  • 3 garlic cloves, or more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon ground paprika

Directions

  1. Put garbanzo beans in a bowl with enough water to cover by several inches; let soak 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Drain garbanzo beans and transfer to a pot; add water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook until beans are very tender, 20 to 45 minutes; drain.
  3. Drain the garbanzo beans and transfer to a food processor; process until fully broken down. Add tahini, ice-cold water, lemon juice, garlic, paprika, and 1 teaspoon salt; continue to blend until smooth and creamy, 3 to 4 minutes. Adjust seasoning to taste. Alternately, put the ingredients into a deep bowl or pot and blend with an immersion blender until smooth.

Homemade humus is the only way to go! This is officially our family's favorite recipe, we make it all the time. It's the perfect amount of tahini, lemon, and garlic.

I cheated a bit and used canned garbanzos instead of dry, because I was too impatient to wait. When I'm feeling more like a patient person I will try with dried. Delicious with paprika sprinkled over the top as well.
