The Best Creamy Homemade Hummus

Creamy homemade hummus takes less than 5 minutes to make.  Enjoy it with sliced carrots, cucumber, tortilla or plantain chips for the perfect Vegan and Gluten-Free mid day snack!

Organic garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas) are very high in protein and vitamin C, among many other benefits – including being vegan, gluten-free and … delicious! Hummus of course is cooked and mashed chickpeas, and while the dish has been around for quite some time (chickpea cultivation dates back thousands of years in the Middle East) it seems only in recent years has it taken hold in the United States.

I love serving hummus with sliced veggies as a snack, but it also goes well with my Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad as an Entree.  Whichever way you choose, I think you’ll love it!

Pro Tips:

Always rinse your beans in a fine mesh strainer under the faucet before using. This removes any extra salt of additives that may have been added to them when canning.

I like to add the garlic to the food processor first and giving a quick pulse.  This step ensures that the garlic is minced and therefore able to spread evenly throughout the dip.

If your hummus is too thick, add more olive oil 1 Tablespoon at a time until desired texture is reached.
