  • 1 1/2 cups Chickpeas or Garbanzo Beans soaked and cooked or rinsed and drained from a can
  • 1/2 of a cup Tahini Sesame paste
  • 1/8 of a cup Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup of Water or more if needed
  • 1 tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup can be omitted, see notes
  • Small handful Fresh Parsley + more for garnish
  • Olive Oil optional
  • Paprika optional


  1. Place all ingredients except olive oil, paprika, and extra parsley in a food processor. Pulse until hummus is smooth, adding more water if needed.
  2. Add hummus to a large bowl and drizzle with a tablespoon or two of olive oil, sprinkle with paprika, and garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

Recipe Notes

1.) The maple syrup balances out the sharpness from the dijon mustard very well. However, if you would like to omit it, then add about two teaspoons less dijon mustard to the hummus. 2.) Don't be afraid to add water to your hummus. Water actually makes hummus creamy and very fluffy. Start off adding 1/2 a cup of water and then see if more is needed. If you add to much, your hummus will eventually turn watery. If this accidentally happens, add more chickpeas or tahini.3.) Make sure to use tahini that has no salt added or any other ingredients. Tahini should be made of only sesame seeds. Click on the tahini link in the ingredient list to see the one I like best.
