This Oil-Free Hummus makes such a creamy and delicious spread that you can serve with veggies or crackers. You only need four ingredients for this vegan and gluten-free recipe.



  • 1 15-ounce can garbanzo (or chickpea) beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/3 cup unsalted tahini
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In the base of a food processor or high-speed blender, combine the garbanzo beans, lemon juice, garlic, tahini, salt, and pepper.
  2. Process on high for 45 seconds to a minute, or until the ingredients are combined and creamy.
  3. If you need help getting the mixture to blend, you can add 1-2 tablespoons of water to the mixture.
  4. Serve immediately, or refrigerate and serve chilled.


Store any leftovers in a tightly-sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
