I love hummus! Only sometimes I don’t feel like eating garlic for different reasons (although I really like it!). So, I created my recipe for Homemade Hummus without Garlic.

I use this hummus with almost everything, here are some ideas:

Hummus, a very healthy dip, as long as it is homemade!

Hummus is a made of cooked chickpeas seasoned with olive oil, lemon and generally garlic. Traditionally tahini, a sesame puree that brings smoothness to the hummus is also added.

Like most beans, chickpeas are high in fibers and nutrients, especially magnesium, potassium and iron. In addition, it is a food rich in vegetal proteins, ideal when following a vegan, vegetarian diet or simply with very little animal protein.

Olive oil for its part provides fatty acids of the mono-saturated type which are ” good fatty acids“, rich in Omega 9 and antioxidants. Finally, lemon is a source of vitamins, especially vitamins C .

Hummus is therefore a dip composed of healthy ingredients, provided you do not add other ingredients. However, in many industrial hummus, you will find sugar (too much sugar!). And olive oil is often replaced by refined rapeseed oil or sunflower oil, less rich in nutrient and therefore less good for health.

As you can see, there is nothing like making your own homemade hummus. Plus, it’s super quick. Not convinced yet? Have a look at my video!

Homemade Hummus without Garlic Recipe

For about 8 servings you need the following ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 400g cooked chickpeas, 1 can
  • 40 ml olive oil
  • 8 g tahini
  • ½ yellow lemon (juice) or 1 lime (juice)
  • 1 pinch of chili flakes (more to taste)
  • 20 ml of cold water
  • Pepper

Preparation

Drain the chickpeas. Reserve a few chickpeas for garnish.

Put all the ingredients without a blender and mix until you get a smooth paste. Pour the hummus into a small bowl. Add the whole chickpeas, a drizzle of olive oil and a few dried peppers.

Note

I do not add salt to this recipe because the cooked chickpeas that we find in canned are often already salty. If you feel like you are lacking salt, you can add more.

    Possibly the best Hummus recipe I have ever made. However…..I had to add a lot more liquid. It came out at first like playdoh. But I kept adding tiny equal amounts of water from the chick pea can, olive oil, and lemon juice until it was creamy. But it was Amazing. Thank you! I think one of the secrets was the exclusion of garlic. I love garlic, but hummus is apparently better without it.

    I added a bit more lemon juice and think it definitely needs extra salt, but really loved the recipe. Thank you for taking the time to share it.

    1. Thanks Dustin for your comment ! I’m really happy you like this recipe.
      You’re absolutely right with salt. It really depends on the brands you use for chickpeas and some are very salty, other need extra salt.
