Popular in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, versatile hummus is a vegetarian go-to for everything from sandwiches and dips to deviled eggs and salads. Here's how to make your own.


  • 2 cups chickpeas

  • 1/4 cup tahini

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Garlic Granules

  • 1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Sea Salt

  • Frontier Co-op Black Pepper

  • juice of 1-1/2 large lemons, to taste

  • cold water

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil to garnish

  • 1 tablespoon Frontier Co-op Za'atar Seasoning

  • chopped fresh parsley to garnish


    1. Put the chickpeas, tahini, oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor (a blender will give you a much smoother hummus).

    2. Begin to blend and add the cold water as needed to create a smooth purée.

    3. Taste and adjust to your liking.

    4. Transfer to a bowl and drizzle with olive oil.

    5. Garnish with za’atar, paprika, parsley, and extra chickpeas.
