So I’ve never been a huge fan of tahini, and I know a lot of people who don’t like hummus until they’ve tried one without tahini. This is a super simple and quick hummus recipe that is pretty healthy and will make everyone happy!
If you prefer a hummus with tahini though, replace the olive oil in the recipe (Except for 1-2 TBSP). Also be sure to read the tip at the bottom of the directions for a smooth and creamy hummus, if you buy a cheaper can of garbanzo beans they are most likely not soft enough for this recipe. (I buy the ones at Aldi so no judgement here!)
Also another tip is to put your lemon in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to loosen up all those juices, if you keep your lemons in the fridge, then about 25-30 seconds. It’s a game changer!

Tahini Free Hummus
A simple and delicious tahini free hummus! Follow tip at the bottom of the directions for a smooth and creamy hummus.
- 1 15oz can of chickpeas
- 1-2 garlic cloves (depending on preference)
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 2 TBSP cold water
- Put all of your ingredient into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy, add water to preferred consistency. Scrape down the sides of your blender every so often to achieve a smooth and uniform consistency.
Tip: For creamy hummus, make sure your chickpeas are super soft. Boil in a small pot water with a tablespoon of baking soda after draining and rinsing from the can for about 10-15 minutes until soft. Rinse well and use!
