Fresh Hummus with Pita Chips

  • Prep Time 0:15
  • Cook Time 0:10
  • Estimated Cost $11.00

You haven’t tasted hummus until you’ve made it yourself. It will blow your store-bought junk out of the water. Freshly baked pita chips make it even better.


  • 1 15-oz. can garbanzo beans $1
  • 1 small bunch parsley $1
  • 2 tbsp tahini $4 for 12 oz.
  • juice of 1 lemon $0.50
  • 4 cloves garlic Pantry
  • 3 tbsp olive oil, divided Pantry
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
  • 6 regular round pitas $3
  • 1 tsp paprika $1.50 for 1 oz.


  1. Combine the garbanzo beans, parsley, tahini, lemon, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a food processor. Pulse until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. To make the pita chips, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Cut the pitas into wedges (I like to try to get 8 wedges out of each pita). Spread evenly on a baking sheet and brush with one tablespoon of the olive oil. Bake for 6-7 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crisp. Sprinkle lightly with salt and the paprika. Serve with the hummus.

I love this stuff! It is so so easy to make! It took me much less then what is stated to make as well..I bought the tahini and have been using it over and over, so in reality the cost for how much you use is well worth paying $4ish. This is really refreshing and tasty…I have been making sandwiches with it as a spread and the lemon zest and parsely flavor balance well on the palate and give it a little something something! Yumm!!!! Make this!

I just made this today and probably could have eaten the whole thing in one sitting. I think next time I might try it with some roasted red peppers.
