This classic hummus recipe couldn't be easier—just toss a few ingredients in the food processor and whir away! Aquafaba (the liquid from a can of chickpeas) makes this healthy dip extra smooth and creamy. Serve with veggie chips, pita chips or crudités.

I love this recipe. Simple and tasty. I've put 3 small garlic cloves instead of 1 and used organic tahini. I'd forgotten how good homemade humus was. Won't go back to store-bought humus.

Love how easy this hummus recipe is. I've tried it with sunflower seed butter in place of the tahini and it tastes great.
