I wasn’t planning on doing a post this morning but I just made the best no oil hummus and I have to share the recipe. It is the best oil free hummus I have made or tasted – even if I do say so myself! While on my morning walk today I was talking to my mom on the phone and I was telling her that I like to eat raw veggies dipped in hummus. I had a little extra time this morning before I needed to get to my daughter’s house so I decided to take 15 minutes and make some home made hummus. Yep that’s about all the time it takes to make hummus at home using canned beans. That is quicker then driving to the store to buy it! Why oh why was I buying hummus that was just ok when I could have been making this? Updated blog post with new photos 08/01/2022Jump to Recipe
You will eat a lot more veggies just so you can have a vessel to eat this insanely delicious no oil hummus!
I like to use a combination of garbanzo beans and cannellini because it creates a very creamy smooth hummus.
We made a very short video to show how quickly you can make hummus at home.
Cannellini beans – any small white bean or use all garbanzo beans – home cooked are even better.
Black Mustard Seeds – any kind of mustard seeds or use a grainy prepared mustard like Westbrae.
Aquafaba – is the broth from the cooked beans – use vegetable broth or water
Try different spices to change up the flavor and customize it to your personal preferences.
High Powered Blender – use a food processor instead.
It’s so good you should make a double batch! Hummus freezes well so make some ahead and put it in the freezer for future enjoyment. Try using Souper Cubes for freezing dips, sauces, grains, beans and more.

How To Enjoy Hummus:
Raw vegetable dippers, slices of baked potato, air fried potato slices or Mary’s Gone Crackers.
Give yourself a big scoop of hummus on your chopped salad.
Perfect with an Oil Free Falafel Pattie.
Make a salad dressing by thinning hummus with some lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, salsa or vegetable broth and use as a salad dressing.
Enjoy some on a veggie wrap made with lightly steamed Swiss Chard stuffed with hummus and thinly sliced vegetables and some cooked sweet potato. Or a sandwich with lots of fresh vegetables, baked tofu and crispy lettuce.
Use in Fresh Spring Rolls along with fresh vegetables and herbs.
Wonderful topping for a hot baked potato with a side of steamed broccoli.
Cut small red or Yukon Gold cooked potatoes in half, scoop out some of the middle and fill with hummus. Chill and sprinkle with fresh chives for a cute little appetizer.
