This Classic Hummus recipe is so simple to make and is much tastier than anything you can buy from the store. Vegan, gluten-free and ready to eat in just 5 minutes!
Hummus is a creamy Middle Eastern dip that makes a wonderful healthy snack or appetizer. Serve it with fresh chopped vegetables or pita chips. It also pairs perfectly with my flatbread recipe.
This homemade hummus recipe is made with canned chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin and salt. If you don’t have any tahini, which is a paste made from sesame seeds, just leave it out. You could also substitute tahini with natural (unsweetened) peanut butter.
