Ingredients You Need to Make Dip from Chickpeas

To make this easy hummus dip, you will need the following ingredients (go to the recipe card below for exact amounts and directions):

  • canned chickpeas: these are also called garbanzo beans
  • tahini: you can find tahini in the condiment aisle of the grocery store. Tahini is made from sesame seeds and is a must-have in this recipe.
  • lemon
  • garlic
  • cumin
  • salt

You will also need a food processor or blender. Personally, I love the Ninja Blender for making thick sauces.

  • Customize the recipe: this is an easy recipe to customize to your favorite flavors. Adjust the amount of ingredients like lemon, salt, and garlic if you prefer.
  • To make it spicy: add a couple pinches of red pepper flakes.
  • Blending your hummus: pause to scrape the hummus from the sides of the blender into the bottom. This will help it blend evenly.
