  • Instant Pot
  • Measuring Spoon
  • Measuring Cup
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Small Bowl
  • Blender or Food Processor
  • Can Opener


  • 1 Can, 15 ounces Canned Chickpeas, drained
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 0.5 tsp Cumin
  • 0.25 tsp Ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Cup Water


  • Place the drained chickpeas into the Instant Pot® along with the cloves of garlic and water. Place the lid on the pot and turn the steamer valve to ‘seal’. Press the ‘manual’ button and set the timer for 5 minutes, cooking on high pressure.
  • When the cooking cycle is completed, let the Instant Pot® naturally release the steam, meaning just let the pot sit until you are able to open the lid (about 5 minutes).
  • Pour the water out of the instant pot and reserve it in a separate bowl. Then, place the cooked chickpeas and garlic in your blender or food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and puree the hummus.
  • Add a little of the reserved cooking water if needed to make the hummus your desired consistency. Serve cold!
