Smooth and creamy hummus that’s better and healthier than what you buy in the store. And, you don’t need oil! Creamy smooth oil-free homemade hummus with all the flavor and none of the guilt.


  • 2 15-ounce cans low-sodium or no salt added Garbanzo Beans (Chickpeas)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 TBSP. white vinegar
  • 1 TBSP. low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt or to taste


  1. Drain and rinse chickpeas.
  2. Throw garlic into food processor and chop it up pretty fine.
  3. Scrape down garlic bits, add lemon juice and tahini to food processor and blend 30-45 seconds until it begins to form a paste. Stop to scrape down sides and bottom of food processor and blend for another 30 seconds. You want the paste to be smooth and creamy.
  4. Once the tahini paste is smooth and creamy, scrape down the sides and the bottom once more, add cumin and process for about 30 seconds.
  5. Once again, scrape the side and bottom of the food processor and add 1 can of chickpeas and blend for 30-45 seconds. Stop to scrape down the sides and bottom of food processor. Pour in second can of chickpeas, soy sauce, and vinegar and blend for 1-2 minutes, stopping to scrape sides and bottom if necessary, until it creates a smooth and creamy consistency.
  6. Add 1-2 Tbsp. of reserve chickpea liquid for desired consistency and blend or another minute or until the hummus is smooth and creamy.
  7. Spoon onto a plate or in a bowl, sprinkle the top with paprika or smoked paprika, and enjoy.
