  • 2-3 small jalapeno seeded
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • a generous handful of cilantro, about 1 cup
  • 15 oz no-sodium chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup about 1 lemon fresh lemon juice, or to taste
  • 3 tablespoon tahini
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Mince jalapeno and garlic cloves in the bowl of a food processor.
  • Add cilantro, chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, and salt to the food processor bowl. Process until very smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.


The amount of jalapenos will depend on how spicy you want your hummus. I like mine with quite a bit of kick and I use 3-4 jalapenos with seeds and ribs. ;)
