Oil-Free Hummus

Oil-Free Hummus

Hummus is pretty cheap to buy pre-made, but compared to getting the ingredients yourself and putting it together, especially considering the flavor difference, it can stupidly overpriced.


  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of chickpea liquid saved from the can (aka aquafaba)
  • salt and any other seasonings to taste! I picked chili pepper and cumin


This all comes together in a few minutes.

Dump everything into a blender or food processor, starting with just a 1/4 cup of the chickpea liquid.

Blend and slowly add more chickpea liquid to reach a thickness or thinness you like. Taste and adjust seasoning.


This keeps in the fridge for around 2 weeks for me, and I like to dip celery, carrots, or cucumber in it. You can also water it down to become a dressing on salads, which is delightful.
