Easy Hummus Recipe You’ve Ever Made!

Updated: Mar 18

Today, we are sharing a basic hummus recipe that I made the other day!  My first attempt left it tasting a bit too lemony and garlicy!  So, I pulled back on both as you will see below. I asked a few people to taste trest my second batch of hummus and my tasters loved it!!

If you make this hummus, I would love to know how you liked it!  Some people say Tahini is not necessarily needed to make hummus.  Although, I like following the recipe first and then making variations after I’ve tasted the first batch. :-).


Here’s the recipe:

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus


“This hummus can be made 1 day ahead. Keep it refrigerated, and bring to room temperature before serving. Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds and can be found in many grocery stores.”


  1. 2 cloves garlic, minced

  2. 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained (save some liquid to achieve optimal consistency)

  3. 1/3 cup tahini

  4. 1/3 cup lemon juice

  5. 1/2 cup roasted red peppers

  6. 1/4 teaspoon dried basil


  1. In an electric food processor, combine garlic, garbanzo beans, tahini, and lemon juice. Process until the mixture is smooth. Add roasted peppers and basil; process until the peppers are finely chopped. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer hummus to small bowl, cover and chill until you are ready to serve.
