Homemade Oil-Free Hummus a.k.a. Easy As 1-2-3 & Oh-So Delicious!

If you don’t know, now you know: I really really really LOVE hummus! And just my luck because it’s probably one of the easiest things to make at home!

You need just a few ingredients & your food processor & you’ve got the cleanest hummus you’ll ever come across, grocery store shelves included!

I love hummus spread on anything from rice cakes to buckwheat crisp breads to sprouted toast to brown rice wraps or rice paper rolls but also as a topping or add-on for Buddha bowls, lettuce wraps & even as a nutritious dip for crunchy raw veggies! You can’t go wrong having some homemade hummus on hand, ready & waiting for you in your fridge. Trust me on that one!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 19-oz. can organic no-salt added chickpeas
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. raw tahini or hemp nut butter
  • Sea salt + black pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp. raw organic apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 tbsp. water, as needed (or replace with olive oil for a heartier hummus)

TO MAKE:

  • Add all ingredients to the bowl of your food processor (except water) & pulse until combined & creamy.

CRISPY CRUNCHY VEGGIE + HOMEMADE HUMMUS TOAST:  One of my fave ways to make sure to get in my fats even when making something super light + quick is to include them in the form of nuts, seeds or avocado or a combination of those foods because YUM + because I can do so in a way that isn’t heavy or overwhelming!

TO MAKE IT:

  • Make my homemade hummus!
  • Toast your favourite sprouted bread, spread the hummus & top with tomato slices, alfalfa sprouts, avocado slices, cucumber, hemp hearts, oregano + nutritional yeast.
  • Serve with a side of endives because CRUNCH (& fibre!).
  • ENJOY!
