Best & Easy Hummus Recipe
Homemade hummus is vegan, very easy to make, and needs only a handful of ingredients. But you need to make it in a food processor for a smooth consistency. If you don’t have one, you can alternatively make it with an immersion blender. In this case, you might need to add water to the recipe.
- Cooked or canned chickpeas: the main ingredient of homemade hummus.
Aquafaba, the drained water of chickpeas: Use this instead of water to make your hummus extra fluffy.
- Tahini: sesame paste gives your hummus an unique taste.
- Lemon juice: the sour element which is needed for a balanced flavor.
- Spices such as garlic, cumin, salt, and onion powder.
