my go to hummus recipe. I simply love hummus. I cannot find tahini anywhere in my area, no surprise, so I searched a substitute and went with tablespoon full of peanut butter. I love it with a peanut butter
Great recipe! Although, if you are a garlic lover don't be stingy! I added 3 cloves and it was just the right amount for flavor and not too over powering!
My hubby went nuts! Made this in about 5 minutes with my Bullet. I doubled the olive oil AND THE LEMON and left out the sesame oil and only used about 2 tbsp of the garbanzo bean liquid. Wonderful, fresh and YUMMY!!!!
Okay, I know this annoys people, but I made this with changes, upon which this review is based. I was watching a show about snacks for the big game, and I suddenly HAD to have hummus, and I had no garbanzo beans, so I wound up using black beans. I added only about half the oil, and I didn't have to add much bean liquid at all to get a good consistency. I added a little turmeric (just cause it's good for you), a little more cumin and garlic, and about 1-2 T chopped cilantro to go with the more Latin flavor. It's resting in the fridge now, but it was very tasty immediately after I made it. It doesn't look the most appealing, so I think if I were to serve it for guests, I'd garnish it with minced tomatoes and cilantro for color. I plan to use this as a dip, but I think this would also make a great vegetarian filling for quesadillas.
So Super Easy!and we made it tonight. He was looking at a different recipe and drained the liquid from the beans down the sink! Just a little was left in the can. Had to use a little water and used about 1/4 cup EVOO, which was fine by us as we love it. We also added a lot more garlic as that is our preference. We held back a few whole beans to put on top and drizzled on a bit more olive oil after putting in a container. Tastes great but putting in the fridge overnight to meld the flavors. We will definitely be making this again, maybe we'll try cooking the dry beans and make a double portion. Just wondering, can this be frozen?
Simple, quick, easy and oh so delicious. Made this in under 5 minutes. I left out the lemon, doubled the olive oil and garlic
So easy,and tasty. I like mine with a smoother texture, so I take an extra step and peel the garbanzo beans. Just place in a bowl of warm water, rub very gently between your hands. Then run water over flowing to separate the skins.
I really liked it a lot and have plans to make again in the future. couldn't get seasame oil so I used tahini paste instead and it tasted just like what I usually buy at the grocery store
Wow. So easy to make and so delicious. I love that I have control over what I put in it vs store bought. Definitely better than store bought. I drizzled in a little more than a couple of drops for the sesame oil and added in an extra clove of garlic (I like it garlicky). I had to make myself stop eating it long enough to chill it.
Super easy doesn't even do this justice! I could not believe how simple this was, AND it doesn't have tahini?? Amazing!
This is a good hummus and appropriately named. I garnished with a sprinkle of cumin, a drizzle of olive oil, and some chopped parsley.
Perfect! As is, or a starting place to tinker w your own fresh options. I added finely chopped broccoli stems, and parsley. And as said above, best after refrigerated a while, but good to go even on the run. Def, keeper.
After it's made, I put paprika on top with tiny bit of olive oil . That is how my Lebanese friend made it, and it adds a beautiful flavour to it.
Great recipe to start off with and then adjust according to personal taste. Mine is: less cumin, more olive oil, pepper, paprika powder, sambal, more salt, more lemon juice, more garlic Adding part of the bean liquid is brilliant as it keeps the hummus light (so you can eat more, yummie).
I used safflower oil instead of olive oil. Better than store bought!!!
So easy and delicious! Hubby loves it and so does our toddler. I will definitely be making this often!
Very easy to make and tastes good. I used an extra clove of garlic.mmm!
I have only tried Hummus a couple of times before and liked it. My husband has had to go on a Healthy Heart diet so I have been looking for easy recipes for the both of us to try. I made this one without using sesame oil and it was great. I did add a bit of black pepper to it. We will be eating this one again.
My container of garbanzo beans was a couple of oz short but I used the measurements of all the spices the same. I did not put in sesame oil and used about half of my reserved liquid. I used an immersion blender her and it worked great . This is the first hummus that I've actually liked!
I have been looking for a hummus recipe without tahini. I will absolutely try this one!
tried it liked it very easy. I used more than just a couple drops of sesame oil. terrific!
So easy and delicious. I added 1/4 cup of roasted red bell peppers because I had some in the fridge that needed to be used. Turned out great!
Just made as written and it tastes pretty good, I don´t even like hummus but needed to make some and this recipe is pretty tasty.
This was great. Adding it to my recipe box!
I made a few changes ... I didn't have lemon juice and so used lime; I didn't have fresh garlic and so used 1/2 teaspoon of granulated garlic (and cut back on the salt to 1/4 teaspoon); I didn't use sesame oil, I used 1/2 teaspoon of sesame seeds instead. I used about half of the reserved liquid. I think it turned out really well -- quite yummy! Would absolutely recommend ... ;o)
This was a very quick recipe; easy to make with ingredients we normally keep on hand, and easy on the pocketbook, compared with the price of store-bought. I did end up tracking down tahini paste, because this didn't quite satisfy my taste-testers. Once that was added, it was a huge hit! I don't believe I need to pay four dollars for a little plastic tub at the grocery store anymore!
My husband like it at first, but after three days of eating it for lunch....it's not too happy with it anymore. Normally he never complains.
Perfect exactly as is.
So delicious and so easy -- what could be better?!
I loved this!!! If you serving this for something special, get some more chick peas and line a pretty bowl with the beans then put three in the middle, drizzle olive oil on top and some more cumin
To get anyone afraid of hummus to try it, try this: Cook up a lb of taco meat, add quartered grape tomatoes, and sliced almonds. Make sure there is a decent amount of grease, but not too much. In a dipping bowl, spread a healthy amount of hummus inside the bowl, like a bowl made out of hummus. Add the taco meat on top of the hummus, there may be extra. Serve with Pita chips or quartered pita bread.
Great basic hummus recipe, exactly what I was looking for. I used it to make a cucumber appetizer with the hummus being the main star. I did use the 2 drops of sesame oil and not quite half of the bean juice to get the consistency I was looking for. Thanks Chelsey, for sharing your recipe.
Easy Breezy! Added Crushed Red Pepper Flakes and served it with Blue Corn Tortilla chips for the 4th of July! Red, White & Blue ????!!
Made it as directed! My 19 yr. old Grandson hated hummas in the past- Loves it now!!! He wouldn't stop eating it with the pita chips!!! Yay! Only now I have to make another batch for me and my husband!
This is so good I almost ate it all with a spoon. Could. Not. Believe. How. Easy. And. Delicious. I’m a hummus snob and this reminded me of the super quality dips I get in Australia from their Turkish shop that makes everything from scratch. The sesame oil is an amazing touch IMO - I did extra of that and no lemon juice since I didn’t have any. Was still amazing. 20/10 will make again.
Thanks Chelsey!! I made this for my husband. He LOVES hummus and he thought your recipe was absolutely awesome!!! He ate the whole bowl watching the football games last night! LOL I should have taken a picture but I wasn't quick enough! HA!
Folks. You do NOT want to reserve the water from the can. It will give u gas. Bad. Always rinse garabanzos and discard the water. Same with any beans or canned goods. Rinse and never use the water from the can!!!
Excellent recipe, made a few changes, added fresh grated turmeric (thumbnail size) and used coconut oil mixed with sesame oil vice olive oil. Thanks for the inspiration.
Turned out fantastic. Way better than I thought. Didn't miss the Tahini one bit. Added some roasted red peppers and more olive oil. Will definitely make it again. Thanks for the recipe.
Just the way I like it. Excellent recipe!
I always hesitated eating hummus. It was always tasteless and depended on whatever was put on top to give it flavor. I took a chance on this recipe because I love garlic and olive oil, and was desperate for a good source of protein that was not tofu. This recipe is easy to whip up, and is the best hummus I've ever tasted. BTW, this is the first time making my own hummus. Followed the recipe exactly.
This was the best hummus I've ever made! Used my food processor and added a tad more salt and a tad more sesame oil. When it was finished, I put in a bowl, swirled it just a bit, and drizzled a tiny bit of olive oil and sprinkled a little cayenne pepper - it looked just like I get at a Mediterranean restaurant here! I doubled the batch, used some for chicken wraps and the rest was gone in just a few days! I will make it over and over again!
I’ve never been a fan of hummus, but this was really good. I will definitely be making it again! Based on suggestions, I added 1 tsp of peanut butter and extra garlic. I used both oven roasted garlic and raw garlic. Yes, it’s very garlic-y, but I love garlic so this is a good thing for me and probably why I enjoyed this so much.
Just as good as the one you buy for a lot less money.
The only change I made to the recipe was that I put 1/3 cup homemade tahini in it. Also put a little extra garlic in. Awesome taste, I will make this recipe again.
My grown daughter, who loves hummus and who makes an incredibly complicated version, couldn't believe how simple this is. And she loved it. So did we all.
I trippled the recipe and added a tbsp of garlic juice and a 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro. My 2 and 11 year old loved it with carrots.
Thanks! Love hummus! This will be my new go to recipe for hummus. Simple & easy to make. I'll eat pita and hummus morning,noon,& night.
I really love that this recipe uses sesame oil rather than tahini as I always have sesame oil on hand. I don't think I'll ever buy hummus again since this is so easy to make and it's way less expensive than buying it, plus tastes great! I'm looking forward to trying a few flavor twists as well, but this is a great basic hummus recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
My husband is Lebanese and they don't add Cumin to their Hummus. I, personally love it with the addition of the cumin. I also toast raw sesame seeds and add them as well. It's fabulous!!!! I make it all the time! My kids love it too!
Excellent flavour and just as it says “Super Easy” even for a kitchen newbie like me.
Delicious and easy. I didn't have the tahini but otherwise followed the recipe. Good for babies trying new tastes too.
It's easier to get dried chickpeas in my country compared to tinned ones so I got a pack to make two chickpea recipes. So this is what I've learned with dried chickpeas: - 15oz does not refer to the weight of the chickpeas. I thought I outsmarted the calculation by putting less than half of the weight in dried chickpeas so that by the time it soaked overnight, it would double. It almost did at over 12 oz. Again, this 15oz does NOT refer to the weight of the chickpeas in this recipe. - Dried chickpeas have this skin which, when I used for another recipe, didn't look so nice. I peeled them off for this recipe to get a smoother blend. I now have a large tubful of hummus in my fridge after using plenty more olive oil, water, lemon juice and everything else to get it to what I think it should be. I left out garlic because I don't want to be anti-social at the office as I plan to eat this for breakfast but I think it still tastes fine.
Absolutely delicious easy and quick hummus receipe. I added 2 garlic cloves instead of one bc i like it more garlicky. Add enough liquid from the can of garbanzo beans so that the hummus is not to thick and yet not too thin. Gage it. Do not skip sesame oil. It just adds another dimension and brings this hummus to the next level! I also top the hummus at the finish with additional olive oil, toasted sesame, paprika, cayenne pepper, and chopped cilantro. Very pretty pesentation! My husband can’t get enough of this!
Love this! This recipe is perfect for me, especially since you can alter it for your preference. I typically add some more lemon juice, because I just love lemon, but it's still a really solid base! Also, I don't own a food processor, but throwing it in the blender works fine too
Just made this. It's hard not to eat it all right now!! I added extra garlic and probably a teaspoon of sesame oil! Great and easy way to make humus!
I kept looking for a delicious hummus recipe and getting complex so so recipes in return. Finally decided to search for a simple, easy hummus recipe and found this. Yay! Served it on homemade whole wheat chapati with oil free grilled orange bell pepper, red onion, and eggplant, topped with fresh organic grape tomatoes, and slices of avocado and my non vegan friends went nuts over it. So good!
I will never buy hummus again! This recipe is so easy, and the hummus is the best I have ever tasted!
This was delicious. And very easy to make. My daughters best friend whose a very picky eater and had never had hummus before loved it!
Perfect as is
Yummy! Thank-you. Can't wait to try the peanut butter someone suggested. Didn't have tahini, still delicious!
I made it exactly as the recipe called for, easy and really tasty, probably won't be buying store bought hummus ever again.
No point at all in getting storebought when making it is this easy! And really good, too.
Super easy and really good! I just add 1TBS of minced garlic instead :) Thanks so much!
Easy and delicious
Great easy recipe! Only thing I changed was the amount of garlic... but im an addict.
I have made this 3x in the past month. We just love it. I use warmed pita bread cut up like pie sections and serve with sliced peppers, celery, cukes, carrots, tomatoes, kalamata olives and feta! It's a great meal on a hot summer eve! Especially flavorful when you let sit in fridge for hours before serving !
I love this but I don’t add cumin I don’t like cumin I’ve never tried this recipe with but other than that I’m in love with this
This recipe was great, although I did decide to make a few changes. I accidentally put in too much liquid from the garbanzo beans, so I added another can of beans with no liquid. I also added a bit of dried onion flakes, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. I didn't have sesame oil, so I used tahini. Really easy and immediately ready to eat!
This is a good basic recipe, but is too thin for us as written. Tahini paste if you have it really adds more complexity. Chilling overnight definitely is the way to go if time allows. If you like this as written, don't hesitate to add other flavors. We love added roasted red pepper. One thing that I've been doing for years is cooking (micro works) the garbanzo beans first. It breaks down the bean and makes hummus much smoother.
Wonderful & easy recipe. I added fresh lemon juice 1/2 lemon and 2 cloves garlic for some extra spice. My husband said it was the best he has ever had! Thank you!
I really like this basic recipe! I did add more cumin due to personal preference. I also used 1 TBSP of Tahini, red bell pepper, and cayenne pepper. What an easy recipe for awesomeness!! The 1st batch I mad got eaten by my husband and Bichon (don't ask). The 2nd batch, I am eating!
Delish made in 5 minutes i sprinkled in 1 T of real bacon bits only adds 25 more calories but its yummy
Yummy! If I knew making hummus was THIS easy- I would have did it a LONG time ago! No more store brand for me!
I used basil-flavored olive oil and topped with micro greens. Left out the sesame. Perfect proportions of ingredients. Will definitely make again.
Better than store bought. But I've been looking for a recipe that's as good as the middle eastern restaurants I've been to. I do recommend tripple the garlic. I may use this for a base to make a spicy hummus by adding serrano peppers.
Added sun-dried tomatoes and lots of garlic. Super good
Love this recipe! Best hummus I've ever made.
This is a good basic recipe. That’s what I like. I only used 1/2 can of the reserved liquid. I will definitely be adding more garlic next time. It’s just a personal preference. Thanks for sharing.
This was good. I ended up using 2 tbsp of the reserved chick pea liquid. Also used 3 tbsp of olive oil to get the texture I prefer. After tasting I added another large garlic clove and a few turns of cracked black pepper. Served with vegetables and some avocado chips.
So easy to make. I added everything bagel seasoning to mine. It is amazing and still so healthy as a snack.
Easy recipe. I tripled recipe and added 2 sundries tomatoes.
I'd add the Tahini that other recipes suggest. I agree letting the element blend over time gives it a better flavor. Hummus
I can't find Tahini. Using Sesame Oil is Awesome, fast, and I cannot tell the difference. This is a good base for what ever your style of hummus is. I like Roasted Red Pepper. Most times? It's this Basic Hummus with Tortilla Chips or Basil Pita chips. So Good!
Perfect starter recipie for hummus. Great as written and easy to add your favorite tastes . For those unable to find tahini locally you can find it on Amazon.
Turned out great! I doubled the lemon (used the juice from ½ lemon) and garlic. Tastes really fresh, with a nice punch from the garlic. I used a dash of sesame oil, which worjs
I'm giving this 4 stars because I feel like the garlic was a little overpowering. I love garlic, but not when it sits in your mouth for hours after you've eaten. Be sure to very slowly add the bean juice because a little goes a long way. This is definitely a keeper.
We made this for our Christmas get-together and my kids loved it! So easy and delicious!
After reading the other reviews, I left out the cumin. I added extra garlic and Tahini paste. Tahini is very easy to make (I found a receipe) I should have used more of the liquid since it came out a little thicker then I wanted, but it tasted great. I also used organic canned garbanzo beans. I drizzled olive oil on top and garnished it with chopped parsley and pine nuts.
So quick and simple to make. I also used 3 cloves of garlic and doubled the amount of lemon. Next time I plan to add some sun-dried tomatoes. I didn't have any in my pantry this time. I plan to use this recipe often for quick, delicious hummus.
This is super easy and delish! Thank you for sharing!
Very Easy and delicious hummus. Made exactly as written. Better and cheaper than store brought.
I added chili powder to the mix and drizzled olive oil and a dash of parsley flakes on top. Will definitely make again ??
I'll never buy hummus again. Absolutely delish! Company ate it all and I doubled the recipe. Really easy too!!
As stated many times previously, this is really easy. The cumin gives it a nice flavor as does the sesame oil and you don't have to hunt down tahini.
I have made this several times. It is just like its name- Super easy and very delicious. Would highly recommend
I added about 1/2 tsp of sesame seeds to the mix, then toasted black and white sesame seeds to put on top. Super easy recipe, something I can have on hand often!!
