Easy Homemade Vegan Hummus

Hummus is so quick to make at home and will become something you make time and time again. Enjoy my recipe for Easy Homemade Vegan Hummus.

Ever since I learned how to make hummus at home I make a lot! It’s so quick and easy, plus it can be updated to include different herbs and ingredients to make it a little more interesting. However classic style is my favourite. I prefer it a little bit chunkier than super smooth but being made at home means you can create it to your favourite consistency.

The reason I have called this vegan hummus is because this is a vegan recipe. I’m still surprised how many people don’t know it is vegan but love it. Not that it should make any difference but to some people it does.

Step by step how to make Easy Homemade Vegan Hummus

1) To make hummus at home you only need 6 ingredients. Chickpeas, tahini, salt, garlic, olive oil and a lemon. Plus paprika to sprinkle on top if you want.

Ingredients to use for hummus

2) Drain the chickpeas and keep the water they were in aside. Add them to the blender.

3) Add the olive oil, salt, peeled garlic, lemon juice and tahini in to the blender to the chickpeas. I used my froothie blender as it is super powerful and the settings make it easy to control to create the perfect consistency.

4) Whizz up in the blender! Add a little extra of the chickpea water or olive oil if you want a smoother and runnier consistency.

5) Pour it out into a bowl and add a few spare chickpeas for decoration and then sprinkle with paprika and an extra drizzle of oil. Enjoy straight away with hot flatbread.

    I used to make hummus all the time, but I’ve got really lazy these days and buy it. You’ve inspired me with your beautiful photos of proper homemade hummus – so much nicer.

    • I think that is the best bit of making it yourself is making it exactly to your chosen consistency. I prefer semi smooth hummus which is easy to move around. However my family love it so thick you almost break your bread off in it.
