Hummus - Oil and Salt Free

When trying to eat healthier, cutting sugars, salt and processed foods, you need to set yourself to success. Eating plain chicken and tofu won't do the job, I swear, I have been there. 

At my house, we used mayonnaise for everything, it had always to be in our sandwiches or wraps. It does gives tons of flavor, is salty and tasty. The best way to upgrade mayonnaise (yeah, upgrade instead of replacing!), is hummus. 

Hummus is super easy to make, it has healthy fats, proteins and goes with everything. I like adding it on my toast, as dip, snack, and event in pizzas. 

Here is a basic hummus recipe, but you can always add flavor with other veggies and spices. Check my pink hummus and spicy one as well!


it makes 2 cups

  • 2 cups of chickpeas
  • 1 big garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons of tahini
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 2 tablespoons of water.

How to:

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Scrap the sides and make sure you are mixing everything. Blend again until is smooth. Add a bit more of water if it is too dry. Since we are not using oil, it might get a bit drier after a few days, but just add a bit of water and mix. 

Pass to a bowl or container, and refrigerate for max. a week. 

Now, is your turn:
