Hummus (tahini free)


Who's ready to dip and spread some chickpea love today? Chickpeas are likely the most loved legume and it's such a yummy, healthy spread when it's whipped into hummus. 

In the past I've had sensitivities to seeds and I looked for a good hummus recipe without using tahini (sesame seed paste.) I remember not being able to find this anywhere. This is why I decided not to include tahini in my hummus recipes. If you prefer to add it, please go ahead, but this recipe is nice and creamy without it!

  • 1/4 teaspoon himalayan salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder (optional)

  1. Wash the chickpeas well then add them and all the remaining ingredients into a blender or food processor.

*You can also use paprika if you don't have chipotle powder.
