  • Place the chickpeas in a medium saucepan and add the baking soda. Cover the chickpeas by several inches of water, then bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Continue boiling, reducing heat if necessary to prevent overflow, for about 20 minutes, or until the chickpeas look bloated, their skins are falling off, and they’re quite soft. In a fine-mesh strainer, drain the chickpeas and run cool water over them for about 30 seconds. Set aside (no need to peel the chickpeas for this recipe!).
  • Meanwhile, in a food processor or high-powered blender, combine the lemon juice, garlic and salt. Process until the garlic is very finely chopped, then let the mixture rest so the garlic flavor can mellow, ideally 10 minutes or longer.
  • Add the tahini to the food processor and blend until the mixture is thick and creamy, stopping to scrape down any tahini stuck to the sides and bottom of the processor as necessary.
  • While running the food processor, drizzle in 2 tablespoons ice water. Scrape down the food processor, and blend until the mixture is ultra smooth, pale and creamy. (If your tahini was extra-thick to begin with, you might need to add 1 to 2 tablespoons more ice water.)

  • When making a homemade hummus recipe, what really makes a difference is the order that you add the ingredients.
  • To prepare this homemade hummus recipe with homemade tahini, start by making the tahini paste. You can either use the sesame seeds raw or roasted. Roasting the sesame seeds will make them easier to grind and your tahini will have better texture. But if you have a really good food processor use them raw as tahini made from raw sesame is lower in fat. Place the sesame seeds on a large baking tray and roast them for about 5 minutes, until fragrant and glossy. Sesame seeds can burn very quickly, so make sure to shake them frequently and be careful not to brown them.
  • To prepare this version of homemade hummus recipe without tahini, place the garlic in a food processor and mince.
