This classic tahini-based hummus is paired with homemade parmesan pita chips for a great party appetizer or afternoon snack!



For the hummus:

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 15 oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, about half a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 34 tablespoons olive oil

For the chips:

  • 4 pita bread rounds
  • 4 tablespoons garlic olive oil
  • pinch of sweet paprika
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


For the hummus:

  1. Place garlic in a food processor and pulse until minced. Add the beans, salt, lemon juice and tahini; pulse several times. With the motor running, slowly pour in the olive oil, stopping at 3 tablespoons to check the consistency.
  2. Add additional oil if you prefer a thinner hummus.  Continue processing until mixture is smooth.

For the chips:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the pita rounds into triangles and place in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss until the pita bread is well coated.
  3. Spread in a single layer on the jelly roll pan and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Cool until ready to serve.


Chips will keep in an airtight container for about a week.
