Oil Free Creamy Hummus

Oil Free Creamy Hummus

I used to make hummus with quite a bit of oil but you can easily replace the oil with water.

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

I use a desert spoon to measure the tahini because our tablespoons don’t fit in the jar, then I use the same spoon for the lemon juice.
