Homemade Hummus

Making your own hummus is easy to do, and is so nice to have in the fridge for a healthy snack. I have tried a lot of hummus recipes and I really like this one. This hummus recipe has a really good balanced flavor and would be a great base for different variations. You could add pesto to it, roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes or even substitute out the parsley for cilantro and the lemon for lime.

These are the ways I like to eat hummus:

  1. As a dip with different veggies or crackers
  2. As a sandwich spread instead of mayonnaise.
  3. To make a wrap I spread hummus in brown rice tortillas, or sprouted wheat tortillas and wrap them with cucumbers, tomatoes, shredded carrots, olives, and spinach.
  4. As a salad dressing, it’s a little thick but it gives such a good flavor to a Mediterranean salad.

I have read that you can even freeze hummus for up to three months, I haven’t ever tried it but it is worth a try make a double batch and then have some for later.

    Thanks Desiree! I can’t wait to try this out, and really appreciate you giving me ideas of how to incorporate the chickpeas and hummus into our meals.

      Your welcome. Let me know how it turns out for you. Also another great snack is to roast chickpeas in the oven with a little olive oil and sea salt or any spices that you like. The chickpeas turn crispy and are really addicting.

    Looks great! You mention freezing hummus. While I haven’t yet tried that, I do freeze batches of homecooked chickpeas in 2 cup portions to have on hand. It doesn’t take long to defrost and lets me have chickpeas on hand for a variety of recipes, including hummus.
