Why buy hummus, when the creamiest, dreamiest homemade hummus recipe takes less than 5 minutes. You'll never buy store-bought again!

I don’t know why, but in the last year I’ve become addicted to homemade hummus. It’s gotten to the point where I always have at least one can of chickpeas on reserve, just in case I’m in the mood for some hummus. 

Why buy hummus, when the creamiest, dreamiest homemade hummus recipe takes less than 5 minutes. You'll never buy store-bought again!

And with being so obsessed with it, I’ve made it enough times that I have my recipe down to a T. It’s my absolute favorite 5-minute Homemade Hummus recipe.

And, like, 5 minutes is a stretch. When you have it down like I do, it takes 2 minutes, tops. But I kept it at 5 just to be safe 🙂

What I love about this version is the high ratio of tahini to chickpeas. It makes for a very flavorful, nutty hummus. And it’s super creamy that way.

Because you do use a lot of tahini, which can be slightly bitter, I do offset it with just a drop of honey. I know this sounds weird, but all it does is balance out the hummus. Trust.

A few other things to note:

  1. I like homemade hummus a little thicker, so the recipe below calls for reserving 1/4 cup of chickpea liquids (aquafaba), but I suggest you start out with only using 3 tablespoons. Though if you prefer a little runnier, go with the full 1/4 cup.
  2. I really don’t like garlic in my hummus. I don’t like garlic much in anything unless it’s cooked, actually. It’s because I get really bad garlic breath. Lol. So I don’t typically do garlic in my hummus. But I know a lot of people love garlic-y hummus, so it’s there as an option.
  3. I love serving homemade hummus with a drizzle of olive oil to finish. My hummus doesn’t have a lot of olive oil in it, so you can drizzle a lot of extra on top 😉

I’m also not a fan of garlic due to garlic breathe and heart burn, so I’m glad you mentioned it and I’m not the only one. Moreover, I’m also addicted to hummus. Thanks for the quick recipe.

Like your idea about the Honey.., I’m going to try it. I make hummus regularly and garlic is essential but I simmer it in the chickpeas for twenty minutes then add the other ingredients(except for the Honey, mine is about the same). I enjoy trying different recipes but so far, this simple recipe is the best.

I love homemade hummus and agree about the garlic burn and breath. My husband figured out if you chop the garlic cloves in half put them a bowl with a little olive oil and cook in the microwave for about 30 seconds you don’t get that. It’s amazing, we now do that for recipes that call for raw garlic like Caeser salad dressing etc.
