Homemade hummus is great, but this homemade za’atar hummus is even better! Pair with crackers or veggies and you’re in for a treat!



For the homemade hummus:

  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon, freshly squeezed
  • 3 TBSP ice cold water
  • 3 garlic cloves

For the za’atar spice mix:

  • 1 TBSP za’atar spice mix
  • 1 TBSP olive oil


  1. Optional – Peel the chickpeas!! This results in a much creamier hummus but can take up to 10 minutes to do. It’s well worth it, if you ask me! 
  2. Combine the chickpeas, tahini, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and garlic into a food processor (or blender). Once blended, slowly add in the ice cold water until the mixture is silky smooth.
  3. Add the hummus to a bowl or a plate and top with olive oil and the za’atar spice blend. Serve with your favorite crackers or veggies and enjoy!


Optional: I’ll typically add some additional chickpeas and kalamata olives to the top of my za’atar hummus but this is completely optional. Some fresh parsley is great, too!
