The BEST Homemade Hummus

The BEST Homemade Hummus

The BEST homemade hummus! This creamy deliciousness comes together so easily. The key to make it creamy is to peel your chickpeas – tedious but trust me, it works!

This hummus is made with chickpeas, tahini, garlic, olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper! Add a couple ice cubes for creaminess as well. It’s a great base, and build off it with other flavors like bell pepper, avocado, etc. YUM.

  1. Easiest way to remove the skins…sounds weird but it works…sprinkle some baking soda over the drained beans, mix to coat the beans, then heat on medium until the skins start to come off. Roll the beans around in a kitchen towel for a few minutes and voila! skinless beans. A bit messy, but soooo worth it.

    1. Hi Lizzie! Thanks for this tip – yes, it’s definitely tedious to remove the skins by hand! I’m going to try your method next time. 🙂
