AMAZING HUMMUS RECIPE

Tasty and healthy, hummus is the perfect afternoon snack or party dip! This OH SO delicious recipe by the beautiful Angela Liddon from Oh She Glows was adapted from The Barefood Contessa.

Hummus lovers ourselves, we really like her version’s balance of flavors. As always, it’s SUPER EASY to make in a good high powered blender.

Grab some carrots, celery, or cucumbers to dip into this creamy dip, and you have the perfect healthy snack or appetizer.

Like all of our hummus recipes, this one tastes even better than buying from the store, and since you control what ingredients you add it’s a healthier option too!

Blend up a batch of this amazing hummus can last stored in your fridge for 4-5 days, although we’re sure it won’t last that long!

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS ABOUT CHICKPEAS

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are high in fiber and protein and have a low glycemic index; a combination perfect for making a snack that can help control your appetite by keeping you feeling fuller, longer!

Chickpeas can also help lower HDL (bad cholesterol), reducing the risk of heart disease. There are many ways chickpeas can be incorporated into recipes. They can be used in salads, stews, soups, and curries. Garam, which is chickpea flour, can even be used as an egg substitute in baked goods!

  1. 1/3 of a cup of Tahini was a bit much I thought. Cut it down to 1/4, added a 1/4 tsp of cumin as well, other than that. Great recipe.

  2. I will never buy hummus again! I love Lemon hummus, so I added zest from one large lemon to this recipe and its the best I have ever had! Thank you so much, easy and extra creamy!

      What a great idea Rohini! We are also hummus addicts. 😉 We will have to try this lemon addition! 🙂

  3. 5 stars
    This is so good I want to eat it with a spoon! Great as a low calorie, high fiber snack with baby carrots and other veggies. This is good in place of mayonnaise on a sandwich. So easy to make in my Vitamix – one of the best investments I’ve ever made.

    1. Love it Jane! Thanks for sharing! Yes hummus is SO EASY to make in a Vitamix, and we love to try a bunch of different flavor combos too. 🙂

    1. YAY! Thanks for sharing Jenifer! We are hummus addicts and this is definitely the best hummus recipe we tried if you want to go classic. Happy Blending! 🙂
