Hummus is wonderful, right? But the store version is a little high in fat and salt, plus it’s pricey for the amount you get. 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. Our’s is doubled in quantity with a good 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, its as fun and delicious as you make it, but its also really 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 at this wonderful blog post: 15 Health Benefits of Hummus. An added bonus of making hummus yourself is that you know where the ingredients come from. We like to use dry stock organic chickpeas (sometimes we use 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 so much less expensive than store-bought you’ll be having 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 just add to the plastic in our environment – and THAT’S a good thing.
So, its 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!
