Why You'll Love This Recipe

7 Ingredients: This easy hummus recipe has only 7 ingredients! This easy hummus comes together quickly and easily and it's bursting with flavor.

Healthy: When you make your own homemade hummus you can use pure organic ingredients. Most store bought hummus contains seed oils and other things that are not necessary, in my opinion. So, making your own is so much healthier than buying it.

Use on Everything: While you can always dip veggies and bagel chips in hummus, I actually really love eating it with bread and especially on toast! I also love using it on sandwiches because I'm not a huge condiment fan, so I like to use hummus in place of mayo or mustard.

In a food processor, add the chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt, and white pepper. Pulse to combine, then process on high until desired consistency. I like when it is smooth.

Taste and add more salt and pepper if you prefer, and continue to blend until combined.

Tips

  • Give the hummus time to blend up smooth, I blend on high. You can add more olive oil if the hummus is too thick. Add a little bit at a time and blend again before adding more.  
  • Store hummus in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Use hummus for dipping veggies, bagel chips, or crackers. You can also add onto toast, sandwiches, or use as a dipping sauce for kabobs.
