This Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus Recipe will spoil you forever. You will never buy hummus again. It’s SO good. It takes just 10 minutes and 5 simple ingredients.
I love this Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus recipe. I think you will, too. It’s likely you have all the ingredients in your pantry. The cool thing is that this hummus recipe only calls for 5 ingredients. And they are all foods that I stock in my kitchen all the time: canned chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans), fresh garlic, lemon juice (fresh or bottled), olive oil, and salt. I was blown away at how good this hummus is. And, seriously, it took me 10 minutes.
I usually let people just dip their own veggies, but sometimes I fill celery sticks like Ants on a Log so people can just pick them up and eat them. My vegetarian grandson eats Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus as one of his regular meals.
What You Need
You need a food processor or blender (like a Vitamix, which my daughter LOVES), though, so you can get the dip super creamy and blended. I have a mini food processor like this one that is just perfect for this Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus recipe. Unless you are making a huge amount of hummus, you should use the smaller food processor instead of a large one, but the full size food processor will do if you don’t have the smaller one. I have both and I use my smaller food processor all the time.

Wondering what to eat with Hummus? It’s terrific as a dip or a spread. It’s vegan, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, and corn free, so just about anyone can eat it. No worries about allergies. I serve it with a variety of vegetables, such as carrots and celery sticks, broccoli, cauliflower, sliced red, green and yellow peppers, sliced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. Or make some Chapati (similar to pita) and eat it with this delicious flatbread. I also eat it on Gluten Free White Bread (the best GF bread recipe ever!) as a sandwich. The hummus is low in fat, low in carbs, low in salt, and high in Vitamin B6 and Protein. Woot! Woot!
