I’m a total hummus lover! Even before I started doing the vegetarian thing, I liked using humus in a bunch of different ways – as a dip, as a replacement for mayo on a sandwich, inside of wraps, and it’s great on salad too.
I always bought my hummus from the store in the container. It started to get kind of expensive, but I felt like I wasn’t really getting much for what I was paying for.
It’s my goal to be able to cook everything I like to eat, and so I figured I would try to make hummus from scratch.
So often I’ve heard hummus is so tedious. That you have to find tahini, you have to soak, and boil chickpeas forever before they’re ready to be ground into a paste for hummus. Everyone who I know who has made it always told me that it’s just worth it to buy hummus at the store.
I totally disagree now. I made hummus in less than 10 minutes, and I think it tasted far better than the store-bought kind. It was also cheaper per batch than store-bought. Especially because canned Garbanzo beans are so cheap! See the recipe below! How do you like to eat your Hummus? Are there any recipes that you absolutely love that use it?
I love hummus, too! I’ve made it on my own, but not terribly successfully. This looks super easy and delicious. I definitely hope to give it a try soon!
That was something that surprised me about this when I tried it out. It didn’t take terribly long to make, and I loved that 1 can made a good enough sized batch for me to use as a snack! AND, It was really cheap to make. I’m totally on the budget kick lately!
totally love the hum! it’s a staple in a vegetarian’s diet 🙂 I like the garlic touch
Thank you! I’m pretty sure I’m not a vampire, I LOVE garlic. I think I put it in everything!
Oh wow the hummus really does sound super simple to make! Awesome! What plugin do you use for your recipes? It looks adorable!
Thanks! I actually don’t have a plug-in. It’s a part of my wordpress theme. I’m using cooking press, and I changed EVERYTHING to make it look how I wanted to. I put a ton of work into it, but It was totally work it. I think the theme was around $50. I have been told that “Get Me Cooking” is an awesome plugin for recipes if you’re looking for one to try out :).
LOVE making my own hummus! This looks like a great, classic recipe! 🙂
Thank you! This was my first time trying it, but it’s so easy that I’ll probably never buy it again.
YUM!! Looks so good 🙂 Love how your recipes post!
Thank you! The little coffee cup stains are my fave!
THIS AND CARROTS?
I know! Carrots + Hummus = one of my faves!
Homemade hummus is WAY better than store bought. My favs to make are a roasted garlic (just roast a head of garlic in the oven beforehand) and avocado. I put hummus on everything!
That sounds like a super delicious thing I’m going to HAVE to try!
That looks sooooo delicious! I’ve tried making humus and it didn’t work out too well. You’ve inspired me to give it a second shot!
Thanks Kayla! I love that it’s super easy! It makes me feel like I can make hummus anytime, and save some cash!
UHMMM this looks amazing! The pictures makes me want to grab a green pepper smothered in that yummy hummus of yours and chomp away! delish!!! can’t wait to try it – that is, IF you ever bring me some!
I brought it, and you loved it! You’re welcome 😉
