Mamma Lo’s Hummus

When you grow up in a Lebanese family, someone is bound to tantalize your taste buds with delicacies inspired by the Middle East, especially Hummus. I am lucky to have experienced generations of flavor makers. I believe with all my heart that my Mom’s hummus is the best I’ve ever tasted. Give it a try and decide for yourself!




  1. Using a food processor blend cumin, garlic, lemon, garbanzos, tahini until smooth and creamy, 2 cans of garbanzos should be drained and 1 should be used with juice. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  2. Fry pine nuts in a generous drizzle of olive oil until golden brown. Scatter nuts on top of hummus with the olive oil remaining in the pan. Sprinkle a little paprika on top of hummus, garnish with parsley.


Add more or less garlic & lemon to taste, as my Mom always says, doctor it to perfection!
