Creamy hummus (oil-free)

Creamy hummus (oil-free)

Hummus is one of my favourite things to eat. It is super easy to make and you can have it almost with anything! This hummus is oil-free, and it is still very fluffy and creamy. My tip is to make plenty as it is even better the day after.


If you prefer to soak and cook your own chickpeas instead of buying them in cans, my tip is to add a tsp of baking soda whilst they are cooking. This will make the chickpeas even more soft as well as reduce the cooking time. In the end, it helps in getting the creamy consistency you get in the store bought hummus’ or the ones using loads of oil. Cooking chickpeas without baking soda, is great for a nice and warm one pot meal, where you want to have a little more texture to the contents of the soup, but to me at least, I simply love that creamy hummus texture.
