Hummus has slowly become a major part of my snacking game, but I never have tahini on hand to make it at home. Have no fear, a tahini-less hummus recipe is here!


Yield: 1-1/2 cups hummus


1 (15.5 oz) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp cumin (optional)

1 clove garlic (or 1 Tbsp pre-chopped garlic, or 1 tsp garlic powder)

1 lemon, juiced



  1. In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients.
  2. Blend for 2-3 minutes, scraping down the sides occasionally.
  3. Continue to blend until hummus is smooth. Season to taste!
