  • 15.5 ounces chickpeas canned
  • ½ cup raw almonds sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoons black pepper


  • Drain chickpeas and reserve liquid. Keep a few of the chickpeas for garnish at the end.
  • Add chickpeas to a food processor with the almonds, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Turn on food processor and slowly add in olive oil. Occasionally scrape down the sides of the bowl. 
  • Add reserved chickpea liquid until you get your desired consistency. I used 5 Tbsp.
  • Taste and add any extra salt and pepper as needed.


Makes 1 ¾ cups.
A serving is 2 tablespoons.
Make sure to save the water from the can of chickpeas to thin out the hummus if it's too thick. It has WAY more flavor than water.
