Hummus is, without a doubt a “must have” in our kitchen!

There is so much you can do with hummus – here are a few examples:

And, the best part? Making Hummus is SUPER EASY using a Blendtec Twister Jar.

Hummus (oil-free & salt-free)

Ingredients:

  • 1 can/14oz Chickpeas (I love EDEN brand as it has no salt added, instead using seaweed and no BPA in the lining of the can)
  • 3/4 cup tahini
  • 1 lemon rind & then juiced
  • 1-6 cloves garlic (we LOVE garlic so I use tons, but 1-2 cloves is good for most)
  • 1/2 – 1 cup water

Rinse chickpeas and add together with tahini to Blendtec Twister Jar. Add lemon rind, lemon juice, garlic and 1/2 cup water.  Add Twister lid. Select the “Dips” option on your Blendtec and turn Twister Jar lid counter clockwise at the same time.  If you find the consistency is not right, you can add a little more water to make thinner until it reaches your desired consistency! Store in a container in the fridge – it will keep for about a week – although it never lasts that long in our kitchen! 🙂

    Do you have any ideas on how to make this without a food processee?

    1. That’s a great question Laura 😉 I know many without food processors… here’s what you can do: 1st you want to get the chickpeas to as smooth a consistency as you can – you could use a potato masher or even a fork or a spoon to “mash” the chickpeas. It might not be very quick and they may not end up being as smooth, but you’ll be able to mash the chickpeas to a nice mushy (HA, not sure if that’s a real word ;-)) consistency. Then, once you have mashed them you can add the other ingredients and with a wooden spoon stir it all together until it’s really well blended. YI hope that helps to give you an idea… I’d love to hear from you after you have tried the recipe…. xox

    I’m interested that you don’t use oil… is there a reason for this? I shall try your recipe because I’m constantly in search of the perfect hummus!

    1. No reason really, other than I feel A LOT better when I cut-back on the amount of oil in our diet… We get healthy oils from avocado, nuts/seeds and occasional olive oil, so we do eat oils. I just prefer to cut-back where I can, and with hummus we find it just as yummy without the oil. Another easy place to cut-back on oil is in stir-fries – I use a bit of water instead of the oil and you would never know the difference 🙂

        Interesting… I try to have olive oil – I get it from a specialist shop and get Greek, it just seems so wholesome and also so delicious!
