PCG Foods: Hummus

The Furmanski family almost always has a batch of this in the fridge. It is a go-to spread for bread and crackers or as a base for meats and cheeses. It can even be mixed with a little oil and vinegar to form a great salad dressing.


  • 9 oz of organic Garbanzo Beans (one 15.5 oz can - drained)
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt or pink salt
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper or any favorite hot pepper (optional)


  • Combine ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until you get a uniform texture. Add water in small amounts as needed to produce desired texture.
