Easy Homemade Hummus

Hummus is without a doubt a “must have” in our kitchen! There is so much you can do with hummus. Here are a few examples:
  • Enjoy as a dip with veggies and/or flaxseed crackers
  • Spread a layer of hummus on a wrap and add tons of veggies and salsa for a delicious snack or lunch!
  • Add to any vegetable stir-fry and create a nice creamy sauce
  • Use in potato salad instead of mayonnaise for a dairy-free creamy potato salad
  • Add a dollup on top of a falafel burger
  • And the list goes on!

And the best part? Making Hummus is SUPER EASY using a Blendtec Twister Jar.

Easy Homemade Hummus

(oil-free & salt-free)


easy homemade hummus

1 can (14 oz) Chickpeas, rinsed (I love EDEN brand because it has no added salt, using seaweed instead. The lining of the can is also BPA-free)
¾ cup tahini
1 lemon rind, then juice from rind
1-6 cloves garlic
½ - 1 cup water


Add chickpeas, tahini, lemon rind, lemon juice, garlic and 1/2 cup water to Blendtec Twister Jar. Replace lid and blend on "Dips," turning Twister lid counter-clockwise as you blend.  Add a little more water until you reach the desired consistency. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator. It will keep in the fridge for about a week, although it never lasts that long in our kitchen!

    What does it mean 1 lemon rind, then the juice from rind? How do you juice rind?
