  • 1 can garbanzo beans (or 1 1/2 cups, cooked)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1-2 tbsp roughly chopped jalepeno
  • 1 date, roughly chopped (you could probably use a touch of sugar or honey instead, but I haven't tried it).
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp curry powder


  1. In a food processor, add the lime juice, garlic, water, tahini, jalepeno, and date. Process until smooth, white, and fluffy (about 1 or 2 minutes).

  2. Add the garbanzo beans, salt, and curry powder. Process until smooth. Add 1/4 cup more water if you like your hummus a little thinner.

  3. Taste and adjust flavors to your preference. Add more jalepeno, salt, or curry powder until flavors are strong to your preference. Garnish with jalepeno or cilantro, if desired.

  4. Serve with pita bread, crackers, or fresh vegetables. Keeps well in the fridge for up to a week.
