  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • paprika to taste


  1. Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans.
  2. Mince two cloves of garlic.
  3. Place all ingredients (except for the paprika) into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  4. Scrape hummus out of food processor container and place into a small dish or storage container. Sprinkle paprika on top.


If necessary, add a bit more benefit-loaded olive oil to keep the hummus smooth and creamy.

Hummus tastes great served with raw veggies or gluten-free crackers. It also makes a tasty spread for wraps or sandwiches.
