  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
  • pinch of salt

  2. Blend for 3 to 4 minutes, pausing every time needed, to scrape down the sides of the bowl, until the hummus is totally smooth. 

  3. If it's too thick, add more cold water a tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency.

  4. Taste test and season with additional salt, cumin, and/or lemon juice if needed. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil, and garnish with your favorite toppings.
