How To Make The Creamiest Hummus
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.
What is Hummus, and how to make it at home?
Ways to Spice Up Hummus
There are plenty of ways you can spice up hummus when you make it at home. You can have fun with many nontraditional variations and add different flavors and herbs to the blend. One of my favorite ways to make them is to add avocado, cilantro, and coriander to the food processor. The avocado adds to the rich and creamy texture, while the cilantro gives it a refreshing taste. I call this California-styled hummus. I also like to add cumin to my hummus, but it is not a necessary ingredient, so it is entirely up to personal preference.
You can get as creative with this recipe as you want! You can try to make it with and without the cumin and see which way you like the best. You can also add Kalamata olives or roasted red peppers to the recipe to try other variations, such as adding beets to roasted beet hummus.
How to Garnish Hummus at Home
When it comes to serving hummus at home, the options are endless. The traditional garnish of a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkled sumac, and whole chickpeas can be customized to fit your personal preferences. It can be spread on pita bread and crackers or even used as a dip for fresh vegetables. For a richer taste, fry the garlic in ghee and pour it over the top of the hummus. You can also toast za’atar and sprinkle it over the hummus for a unique flavor twist. Squeezing extra lemon juice over the top can also provide an extra zing of acidity.
