I guarantee you’ll never want to buy store bought hummus again after making this deliciously fresh and easy hummus, that’s ready in under ten minutes!

The flavor and texture of freshly whipped-up hummus is undeniable! Sure, the store bought stuff is a nice substitute in a pinch, but when you have the choice, treat yourself to this homemade version – you won’t believe how much better it is!

Why this Recipe Works:

  • After making this hummus, you’ll notice right away how amazingly fresh it tastes!
  • You’ll end up with about twice as much hummus than if you were to simply buy a container at the grocery store.
  • Since everything is made in a food processor or blender, clean up is minimal.
  • This recipe pairs perfectly with my Crunchy Salt and Pepper Pita Chips!

Is Homemade Hummus Healthy?

  • Yes! This recipe contains ZERO oil, unlike most packaged hummuses. Therefore, this is a healthy snack that you can feel good about.
  • However, if you’d like to drizzle the surface of the hummus to make the appearance pop when serving it to a crowd, I recommend using a small amount of a higher quality oil such as extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil.

How to make Homemade Garlic Hummus:

1. First, draw 3 Tb. of the liquid from a can of garbanzo beans and add it to your food processor. Then, drain the rest of the liquid off, rinse your beans, and add them to the processor, as well.

2. Add the remaining 6 ingredients to a food processor in the order they are listed and blend for one minute.

3. Next, scrape the sides of the bowl, add 1-2 tablespoons of water if needed, and blend again for two minutes.

4. That’s all there is to it! Spoon out your fresh hummus into a storage container and place it in the fridge until ready to eat. It will keep for about two weeks.

I hope you love this hummus as much as I do!

Top Tips for Making Homemade Garlic Hummus:

  • For a “less thick” hummus, add 1 – 2 teaspoons of water, extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, or cold-pressed flax oil to the mix.
  • If you want to make your hummus super special, just before serving, top it with a light drizzle of olive oil or avocado oil, and a good sprinkling of either za’atar or paprika. Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice that goes scrumptiously with hummus. I picked up some in Israel while on Jeff’s world tour a few years ago, and we savored every spec until it was gone! Rumor has it, that you can find za’atar at Trader Joe’s.
  • This hummus can store in the fridge for about two weeks.
  • No food processor? You can blend everything in a blender as well.
