This is an oil free version of my basic hummus recipe. I doubled the amount of water and left out the oil. It is creamy and tasty! No one that I served it to knew the difference!
1 cup cooked garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
1/2 hot bean water (or hot water)
1 heaping tablespoon tahini (optional)
1 garlic clove (or more to taste)
Freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 of a lemon)
Pinch of salt
Paprika, for garnish
Place the beans into the bowl of the food processor. Add hot bean water, tahini, salt, garlic cloves, and lemon juice. Process. Taste and adjust seasoning. Pour into a serving bowl. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika.
Enjoy with toasted pita chips, carrots, on a sandwich, by itself, etc. Enjoy!

sounds so good. I hate that you go to buy hummus and it has an inch of oil all over the top. Just nasty!
Your recipe is similar to mine. I learned from a friend to add a can of cannelini beans to make it extra creamy. I’ve been enjoying your blog!
that is a a great idea too. sometimes i put 1/2 a zucchini in for creaminess. and thanks!
Good golly, why on Earth am I buying this stuff when it’s so easy to make. You converted me. I’m going to try it this week!!!! I love your recipes. Thanks for all the great info.
let me know how it goes! and if you soak your own beans, it will be even better. and cheaper! and then you will be a master hummus maker and never ever go back!
