Hummus is terrific, right? But the store version is a little high in fat and salt, plus it’s pricey for the amount you get. It doesn’t have to be that way when you make it yourself. It’s not hard at all – this is a simple, tasty base recipe that produces a perfect easy hummus for the best hummus ever! What you do next is up to you!
This is our version of an excellent recipe at Inspired Taste. Ours is doubled in quantity with a bit more cumin, a little more lemon, and garlic, so it is a spicier batch. It has the bang of cumin and the tang of lemon juice. Adjust for your taste!

Hummus is Healthy, Too!
This base recipe can be easily adjusted for your taste: more or less oil, more or less salt, spicier, or other add-ins. So, it’s as fun and delicious as you make it, but it’s also good for you! Chickpeas are filled with fiber, high-quality protein, and lots of vitamins and minerals. You can read more about the health benefits of hummus in this wonderful blog post: 15 Health Benefits of Hummus. A bonus of making hummus is knowing where the ingredients come from. We like to use dry-stock organic chickpeas (sometimes from cans), carefully sourced oil, organic garlic, and so on.
A Little Work Makes a LOT of Hummus
Sure, it will take a little time to whip up a batch of this hummus. BUT, you’ll have a TON of hummus that is much less expensive than store-bought; you’ll have it with everything! Hummus toast? Wraps? As a dip? On chips? Sandwiches for the whole family? You bet! Plus, making your own batch means no little plastic containers that get thrown away and add to the plastic in our environment – and THAT’S a good thing.
So, it’s a WIN all around: you save money, you have control of the quality of the ingredients, you reduce waste, and you have a big bowl of awesome hummus! Let’s eat!
