I have always been a fan of hummus, but in recent years, I have learned that homemade hummus is so easy to make and twice as delicious as the store bought stuff. There are endless flavor combinations, plus it's typically gluten free and vegan and great for keeping in your fridge for a quick snack.
🌶 Ingredient notes
- Chickpeas - Also referred to as garbanzo beans, these beans are from the legume family and a key ingredient in hummus. This quick recipe uses canned chickpeas, however, dried chickpeas may also be used. Make sure you cook dried chickpeas before using them for hummus.
- Tahini - Tahini is creamy paste made from sesame seeds that has a strong earthy flavor that gives hummus its extra creamy texture.
- Sriracha - The spicy flavor comes from Sriracha which is a type of hot chili sauce that is used in a lot of asian dishes. Depending on your desired level of spiciness, this can be adjusted or omitted to suite your taste buds.
🥣 Step by step instructions
First, combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender. Blend ingredients on high to your desired consistency, stopping halfway to scrape down to ensure everything is well combined. If the hummus is too thick, a little bit more lemon juice or olive oil can be added to thin it out.
Place finished hummus in a serving bowl and drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and sriracha for garnish. Serve with your favorite, chips, crackers or fresh vegetables.
⭐ Expert tips
- A medium lemon generally yields between 3-5 tablespoons of lemon juice. I recommend adding the juice of one lemon and then pureeing the hummus. If the hummus is too thick, add the juice from the second lemon and more olive oil if needed.
- This hummus can be blended to your desired consistency. If you like your hummus super smooth, it's best to use a high powered blender or food processor. If you like your hummus a little chunkier, then just pulse the ingredients.
🥡 Storage instructions
This hummus will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3-4 days. It can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw frozen hummus in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. Stir or blend thawed hummus to make it creamy again, if needed.
