You are going to love this hummus recipe. It's really easy and simple to make at home. We’re talking 5 minutes, a few ingredients, and just like that, you have the creamiest, dreamiest hummus. Top it with savory shawarma spiced mushrooms for a real treat!



For the Hummus

  • 1 - 15oz can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed- Save the liquid of the can of chickpeas 
  • 1/2 cup tahini 
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup of water or the water you saved from the can of chickpeas (also called Aquafaba)

For the Shawarma Mushrooms


To make the hummus:

  1. Combine the chickpeas, tahini, salt, lemon and water or aquafaba in a food processor and process until smooth and creamy, at least 2 minutes.  Add more water, one tablespoon at a time, for a thinner hummus

To make the shawarma mushrooms

  1.  Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the sliced mushrooms, shawarma spice and salt. Toss well until the mushrooms are coated with the spices
  2. Cook over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes, or until the water the mushrooms will release has cooked out completely
  3. Before serving, spread the hummus in a plate and top with shawarma mushrooms, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of the shawarma spice mix


  1. Make sure you process the hummus in the food processor for at least 2 minutes to get a really creamy hummus
  2. Taste the hummus and adjust salt and lemon to your taste
  3. Hummus and mushrooms can be made 3-4 days ahead. Just top the hummus with the shawarma mushrooms right before serving
  4. Always use good quality tahini and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Our favorite tahini brands are Soom, Al Arzi, Mighty Sesame, and 365 Brand.
