Homemade Hummus: An Easy & Healthy Dip

Hummus is a creamy Middle Eastern dip that makes a wonderful healthy snack or appetizer. I usually like to serve it with fresh chopped vegetables or pita chips. It also pairs perfectly with my Easy Homemade Flatbread (No Yeast) recipe.

So let’s just get this straight – I have absolutely nothing against tahini, which is a thin paste made from sesame seeds.  It’s just that I don’t always have tahini on hand, namely because it’s not an ingredient that I use very often.

What I do always have on hand though, is peanut butter. Peanuts and sesame seeds are often used interchangeably by savvy chefs, depending on what they have available in their kitchens. Both peanut butter and tahini lend a creamy, nutty quality to dishes, so you can easily substitute one for the other.

How to Make Hummus Without Tahini

This healthy, homemade hummus recipe is made with canned chickpeas, natural (unsweetened) peanut butter, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, and salt. Simply combine all of the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth. To make the dip look extra pretty if you’re entertaining, garnish it with fresh parsley, paprika, a drizzle of olive oil or whole chickpeas.

Pro Tip: You can add some toasted sesame oil (maybe about 1/2 teaspoon), which would add a bit of traditional tahini flavor.

For this Hummus Without Tahini recipe, I recommend:

Here are a few kitchen items I suggest using to ensure this hummus recipe turns out perfect:

  • Natural Peanut Butter – Not all peanut butters are created equal, so I recommend using one like this that has no added sugars or preservatives.
  • Food Processor – This is the one I use and love! I have had mine for years and it is one of my favorite kitchen tools. I use mine all the time to quickly combine ingredients and to make sauces and dips.
  • Citrus Juicer – If you cook with a lot of citrus, a sturdy juicer is a must. This one works for both lemons and limes and will squeeze out every last drop of juice like a pro. Worth every penny.

    I made this today and it turned out great! I didn’t have tahini so I used natural peanut butter like you said and it was so yummy!

    1. Hi Lisa! I only recommend using peanut butter than has no added sugar in it. The one I use contains only peanuts. So if you’re going to use regular peanut butter, make sure you read the ingredient label. If all you have is peanut butter than contains sugar/sweetener in it, you can try using it in this recipe, but just keep in mind the flavor will be a bit different.

    I will can’t give it a 5 because I didn’t follow exact recipe in that I did not use peanut butter. I used 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and 1 EVOO. Wow! On my first try ever I was impressed. Canned CP’s although I did boil for 20 min. first. Thank you!
