Easy Hummus


"I make this hummus all the time. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it's healthier without the oil. Increase or decrease the ingredients as desired, especially the jalapenos! Serve with pita chips or fresh veggie slices. Add more of the reserved bean liquid for a smoother dip."

This hummus was super easy and so good! I'm a "hummus snob" too. I was skeptical about leaving out the tahini. I added a bit more garlic, a tsp of black pepper, a dash of tamari, and a choppe...

The recipe is easily scalable to much larger amounts. One thing I noticed is that in larger amounts, it started to get a bit too thick for the food processor to handle. My solution was to add ...

This is a great recipe. Best of all...it is soooooo quick! I added a little less garlic, 2 sundried tomatoes (originally packed in oil), and a little more salt. I also used pickled jalapenos ...

Very tasty. It was my first time making hummus and I needed a healthy version because our guest has high blood pressure and tahini jacked up the sodium and fat. We weren't eating greek so authen...

This is so good and healthy! I added parsley and paprika, and didn't add the peppers. I will definitely use this again. Thanks
