If you haven’t started making your own homemade hummus, you’re totally missing out. It only takes about five minutes, you can adjust the taste to be juuuuuust the way you like it, and you can make a different flavor every week so that it never gets old! I promise, once you make your first batch of homemade hummus, you’ll never go back to store bought.

Can I Make Hummus in a Blender?

While you can make homemade hummus with some of the more powerful blenders available on the market , it might be too thick for many blenders to handle. I suggest using a food processor to make your hummus. You don’t need a heavy duty, expensive food processor, though. The I use is fairly inexpensive for a food processor and is a total beast. I love it.

Homemade hummus is quick, easy, and inexpensive, and can be made with several different flavor add-ins. Here are four delicious flavors to try.

- Drain the chickpeas. Place the drained chickpeas in a food processor along with the olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, salt, and cumin.

- Pulse the mixture until it is fairly smooth. If the mixture is too dry to process smoothly, add a couple tablespoons of water, extra olive oil, or liquid from the canned chickpeas.

- Taste the hummus and adjust the salt, cumin, lemon, or garlic to your liking.

Let’s start by taking a closer look at tahini. Tahini is like peanut butter but made with sesame seeds instead of peanuts. It even has a similar texture to natural style peanut butter, but a very different flavor. A flavor which is critical, IMHO, to getting an authentic hummus. Tahini has a slightly nutty, slightly bitter flavor that is totally unique. Some people use peanut butter in its place, but I find their flavors to be vastly different. Tahini is about twice the price of peanut butter, but you’ll only need a small amount at a time and it stays fresh in the refrigerator for quite some time . You can find tahini in grocery stores either near the peanut butter, near Mediterranean ingredients like olives and artichokes, or in the natural foods aisle.

Drain one 15oz. can of chickpeas and add them to a food processor along with 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup tahini, 1 clove of garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp cumin. Pulse the ingredients until they become smooth. If the mixture is too dry to properly purée, add a couple tablespoons of water, olive oil, or even the drained juice from the canned chickpeas. Taste the hummus and adjust the salt, lemon, garlic, or cumin to your liking. And that’s it! That’s all it takes. You can garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of sumac or paprika.

To make Jalapeño Cilantro Hummus, remove the stem from one jalapeño, slice it lengthwise, and scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Add the seeded jalapeño and about 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves to the food processor with your basic hummus and process until smooth. This hummus tastes great with a little extra cumin! You can also try roasting the jalapeños in the oven until soft and blistered for a more subtle flavor .

To make Roasted Red Pepper flavored hummus, simply add one to two roasted red pepper to a batch of plain Homemade Hummus and process until smooth. Make sure most of the liquid from the jar is drained from the pepper before adding it to the processor to avoid thinning out the hummus too much. This hummus tastes great with a little smoked paprika added to the mix!

For Parsley Scallion Hummus, thinly slice three to four scallions and pull about 1/2 cup of parsley leaves from their stems. Add the parsley and scallions to a food processor with a batch of plain hummus and process until smooth. This hummus is great with vegetables, as a sandwich spread, or even as a !

Another winner! So far, I just keep making the basic hummus, it’s so easy and delicious!. I take it for lunch, with usually some combination of carrot sticks, cucumber slices, jicama sticks, bell pepper and some kind of cracker/chip or naan. I’ve promised myself I’ll make the green onion/parsley next. And Beth is right, store-bought just won’t do it, doesn’t even come close, after homemade.

Fantastic, can’t wait to try all of the variations.

Can you freeze any? I am excited to make a flavor but worried I can’t eat all of it by myself in a week.

I’ve actually never tried to freeze hummus, so I’m not sure how it would hold up.

I really need to try making my own hummus as I go through 2 pots a week! I’ve never managed to get it to taste right though. You’ve inspired me to give it another go.

I hope this one works out for you! :)

Hi for how long will this be good refrigerated/until when does it spoil?

There is no exact length of time as this often depends on a lot of factors, but I would say about 4-5 days.

That parsley and scallion hummus is one od the best things I’ve ever made.

I LOVE this recipe!!! I lived in Dubai and became a super hummus snob, I tried different recipes without success until I found this one. I think having the right tahini paste is key.
