Easy Hummus without Tahini – simple recipe for hummus made with just a few ingredients and no tahini. So much better than the store-bought stuff.
Homemade Hummus is one of the easiest dips you can make at home. All you need is a can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans, lemon juice and olive or grapeseed oil. Classic hummus includes tahini, which is a sesame seed paste or sauce. Since it can be quite difficult to find and expensive, it is not at all required to make a delicious hummus in minutes.
You can easily make flavored hummus by adding roasted red peppers (so delicious!!), avocado (swoon!) or stir in veggies and spices to make custom blend. This Easy Hummus without Tahini is so simple and quick to make, you can forget the store-bought stuff.
HOW TO MAKE HUMMUS WITHOUT TAHINI
To make hummus, you can use canned chickpeas that have been drained and rinsed OR cook garbanzo beans on stove top or in the Instant Pot. Next, you need to add garlic cloves, lemon or lime juice and olive or grapeseed oil. Add water, tablespoon or two at a time, and blend until the hummus reaches desired consistency. Season hummus with salt, cumin and pepper and serve. This hummus is so much better than any store-bought stuff because you know exactly what is in it.
I use my mini food processor that came with the stick blender (affiliate link) because it is perfect and I don’t have to pull out the big guy just to make a dip.
HOW TO USE HUMMUS
You can enjoy this creamy hummus with pita or tortilla chips, spread it on a tortilla, top with veggies and chicken to make a delicious wrap for lunch, stir into your pasta for a healthier sauce option or even use to make veggie burgers. It’s so delicious and the flavor options are almost limitless.
