  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt or to taste

For the Hummus

  • 1/4 to 3/4 cup of tahini to your taste. I use the upper range
  • 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice one large juicy lemon

Instructions

To make bagel chips:

  • Slice your bagels vertically into coins about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Place bagel slices on a baking sheet in a preheated 350-degree oven. Bake for 15 minutes and check for crispiness. You may have to return the bagel chips to the oven if your bagels were more moist than mine from the start.
  • Add 2 tbsp of oil to a bowl.
  • Toss baked bagel chips with the oil in the bowl and add half of the seasoning mixture. Mix well to coat. Add remaining oil and seasonings and mix once more to combine.

To Make Hummus

  • Add drained and rinsed chickpeas to your food processor or blender.
  • Add your tahini and lemon juice.
  • Blend until everything starts to get smooth and thick.
  • Add garlic, cumin, salt, and other desired seasonings, along with the olive oil.
  • Blend for 2 minutes.
  • Check for consistency and add ice water while the machine is running, a little at a time until you have reached your desired consistency (use as much or little as you need, go slowly).
