This is my favorite hummus recipe, from my cookbook The 420 Gourmet! With a few simple tricks and the right tools, you really can make thick yet smooth homemade hummus and yes, I really do think it’s better than store-bought and you can let me know below in the comments. Making hummus should be fun and easy, try it!
Enjoy my Canna-Hummus as you would any other hummus. You can make this either "light", "medium", or "super-potent." For the light version, substitute extra-virgin olive oil for the canna-olive oil. For the medium version, substitute plain tahini for the Canna-Tahini. And for the super-potent, prepare as per the recipe below without substitutions.

2 cups of canned chickpeas (one 15-ounce can)
1/2 cup of canna-Tahini
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 tbsp of canna-olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon or 1 1/2 tbsp of store-bought "real lemon"
1/2 tsp of lemon zest
