Print Recipe Pin Recipe


  • 400 gr canned chickpeas
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ lemon juice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • handful basil roughly chopped
  • cup aquafaba chickpea liquid
  • 1 tbsp tahini


  • 1. In a strainer over a large bowl, drain the chickpeas reserving the liquid.

  • 2. Peel the chickpeas (optional but will result in creamier hummus).

  • 3. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend (pausing to scrape down the sides of the bowl) until smooth. If your hummus is too thick add a tablespoon or two of chickpea liquid or water.

  • 4. Taste and season with additional salt, basil, or lemon juice if needed.
  • 5. Transfer it to a serving bowl and garnish it with any topping that you would like. Enjoy!
