Easy Authentic Homemade Hummus Recipe
This authentic recipe makes the best homemade hummus! My creamy hummus recipe is a perfect replica of the light and fluffy one I used to eat every day in Jordan.

Growing up in Jordan, hummus was part of our everyday tradition. In addition, it’s a very common side dish when you’re having a Jordanian breakfast. There was no need to make hummus at home, as every other shop around the corner served hot and delicious hummus and falafel. But for those who want to make an authentic hummus recipe at home, this one is surprisingly simple and takes a few steps. Perfect for those who love hummus and can’t get enough of it.
Variations: Easy Homemade Hummus Recipe
When making hummus at home, there are numerous ways to get creative and add unique flavors. Here are a couple of my favorite variations:
- California-Style Hummus: For a creamy and refreshing twist, blend avocado, cilantro, and coriander into your hummus. The avocado enhances the texture, while cilantro adds a burst of freshness.
- Cumin Infusion: Adding cumin is an option that can impart a warm and earthy flavor to your hummus. It’s a matter of personal preference, so feel free to experiment with and without it.
- Exploring Other Flavors: Don’t be afraid to get creative. Consider incorporating ingredients like edamame or roasted red peppers to create unique variations. For example, adding beets can transform your hummus into vibrant roasted beet hummus.
How to Garnish Hummus at Home
When serving hummus at home, you have endless options for garnishes and toppings. While the traditional garnish includes a drizzle of olive oil, sumac, and whole chickpeas, you can personalize it to your liking. Spread it on pita bread crackers, or use it as a dip for fresh veggies. Consider frying garlic in ghee and pouring it over the hummus for added richness. Toasted za’atar is another fantastic option to sprinkle on top, lending a unique flavor twist. To elevate it further, you can squeeze extra lemon juice for a zing of acidity. Add ground lamb, sautéed onions, and toppings for a heartier or favorite option to create a satisfying hummus experience.
