Making your own hummus is quick, easy, and will save you loads of money over time (especially if you eat hummus as frequently as I do). I’ve stopped buying tubs of hummus at the store for the most part and instead will whip up a batch in my food processor whenever I need more.
Hummus is traditionally made with a huge amount of olive oil—something like a ¼ cup! Today I’m excited to share a classic hummus recipe that is just as good but without any added olive oil.

Thank you so much I have been having so much trouble trying to figure out what to eat but you got me and I thank you
So happy we can help, Tonya! 🙂
I have tried other oil-free hummus recipes, and I don’t usually like them as much as the typical oil-laden versions. This one is perfect and my new go-to for homemade hummus.
Hummus is super easy to make, I used to buy it until I made it once and realized how much I could save in amount made and money 🙂
Love it!!!! This hummus looks sooo good!!
This oil-free hummus is a staple in our house! The perfect snack for three hungry boys 🙂
The best hummus you’ll ever try! I always wondered why you needed to add oil in (and, sometimes, on top) of hummus. Without the oil, it tastes just as good…or even better! The tahini and garlic gives the recipe juts the right flavor, texture and richness. SOOOO good. Don’t just take my word for it. Make it today! 😀
I have made this many times and it is delicious. No oil needed, at all, and it is not missed. This hummus is creamy and rich and is so much better than any I have ever purchased. I like to sprinkle parsley and smoked paprika on the top for a colorful presentation and some added flavor. I am a big garlic lover and the 2 cloves of raw garlic works for me!!
This made me wonder why I ever dumped so much oil in my hummus before! This is JUST as good! Yum.
This hummus recipe is so easy and delicious! I’m big on adding a bit of roasted garlic to mine.
