Homemade Hummus is not only healthy but super easy to make, and tastes better than anything bought from the store. Learn how easily this recipe comes together!

This easy dip recipe is wonderful to make sandwiches for lunchboxes, or simply serve it with bread sticks or pitta. Hummus is just creamy, dreamy and light, there is absolutely no need to peel your chickpeas.


2 (15 oz) cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained with liquid (aquafaba) reserved.

1/3 cup chickpea liquid (or more , as needed)

1/2 cup tahini

1/4 cup olive oil

2 lemons, juiced

2 garlic cloves

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp salt


olive oil


fresh parsley or coriander


  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender.
  2. Then turn blender on to the highest setting for 30 seconds, or more for a creamier texture. Add more aquafaba if needed, for a softer hummus.
  3. Now add hummus onto a serving plate, drizzle with olive oil, add a dash of paprika and top with fresh herbs, I used coriander!


Homemade hummus will last for about a week in the fridge, if it is stored in a sealed container.

You could also freeze hummus in tightly sealed containers for further use.

If you are not a fan of Tahini, you can leave it out completely and simply add a little peanut butter or more olive oil!

Also , remember that you can make your very own tahini instead of the store-bought one!

Tahini is made from toasted sesame seeds and grapeseed oil.

Hope you give it a try . Please feel free to leave a comment or send pics , I would love to see them.
