Oil Free Creamy Hummus

Oil Free Creamy Hummus

You can replace the oil in hummus with water or plant milk. I personally find that unsweetened cashew milk makes for the most creamy hummus, though unsweetened soya milk will work too. If you use water I think it’s best to leave the hummus a bit more rustic and chunky.

There are countless variations of this recipe:

  • replace the chickpeas with other legumes such as sprouted beans, canellini or borlotti beans
  • add in vegetables such as cooked beetroot, spinach or roasted red peppers
  • add herbs and spices such as coriander leaf, ground coriander, ground cumin, paprika, turmeric and / or chilli flakes
